Site cleared of malware. Ads not running due to malicious content

[ Edited ]

My site that I manage <edited by a Community Manager as noted below> has been cleared of malware following a security breach last year. There is no Security Warning in Google Webmaster Tools and my site scanner says the site is clear.

However, I keep receiving emails telling me that my AdWords ads are not running due to malicious content. When I re-submit the site, it is fine for a few days then the same warning email arrives and the site's ads no longer run.

Any ideas? Thanks Smiley Happy

Other than malware, can it also be content that is "characterized by malice; intending or intended to do harm."

Thanks for your response.

I re-submitted the site months ago and Google verified that it was now clean. There are no warnings in Google search console and the site is ranking (very highly!) organically.

However I keep receiving 'Ads not running due to AdWords Advertising Policies' warnings due to 'Malicious content'

@Joel S;

Send the clearance from the search console to support.
