Hi Alex! from what you say i can assume the site is suspended. You can get hints on what's wrong by adding Policy Column to your ads chart (Ads-> Columns-> Modify Columns -> Add Policy Details). IMHO, in your case the problem can be related to Unsupported Content: Promotion of free desktop software, unless the ad includes the name of the specific software being promoted and leads to the authoritative online distribution source for the software. The authoritative source must not have a history or reputation of policy violations. https://support.google.com/adwordspolicy/bin/answer.py?hl=en&answer=6023676

Hi Alex,

Welcome to adwords community!
Website can't be advertised means it doesn't follow one or more of our site policies.

Please check Advertising policy from here: https://support.google.com/adwordspolicy/answer/6008942

Check your email inbox, you must have received an email explaining what your website is violating.
