    Hello,

    I am quite new to Adwords and have only been using them for 4 days.

    For some reason I am unable to post this in the "Adwords section", my thread is not getting posted, so I am going to post it here.

    The first 2 Ads that I ran had no issues of getting approved.

    After I changed the text the in the headlines and in description, my new Ad got declined for "malicious or unwanted software". In that text, I included the term "apps/software/download".

    After editing the Ad back to the old text, I am still getting the "malicious or unwanted software" decline.

    My website is built in WP, and I don't have any malicious plugins, I have checked and google console also didn't report anything. In fact, I only have a few plugins.

    My questions are:

    1) Would using a new Ads account allow me to bypass this, or was this site already flagged by Google and I won't be able to promote it even on new account? (I could use a subdomain)

    2) If the answer is no to question 1, then what are the other possible options? Would cloaking work or would I have to move it to entire new domain? (my website is BH)

    Thank you in advance to everyone!
