"googleleadservices DOT com" Should I Be Concerned

Hi, I've been using Adwords now quite extensively for coming up to a year. I have 3 campaigns and multiple Adgroups running. I'd say I have a decent knowledge of the basics of Adwords. I am not however fluent with Analytics.

A different simpler tracking program has met my purposes for several years, called Statcounter.

My stats from that program show visits from www.googleleadservices DOT com This would appear to be a browser hijacker but it would be my visitors who have had their browsers hijacked not me ..... if you see what I mean.

Here is a recent screenshot:

My question is do I need to do anything about it / can I do anything about it / is it adversely affecting my Adwords campaigns / is it costing me?

Many thanks.
