    I don't know if this counts as dodgy, but I wouldn't trust it...

    And two more, in this very thread! Oh the irony.

    http://googleads.g.doubleclick.net/p...jII0SDV4QFXc14 looks dodgy, as does http://googleads.g.doubleclick.net/p...EyCMM_BnfmLjJJ.

    The former links to http://www.spamfighter.com/SLOW-PCfi...dwenSPAcn&nm=5 and the latter to Clean Your Registry, Speed Up Your PC and Optimize Your System With Registry Reviver by ReviverSoft - neither look overly brilliant, although the first is the most suspicious.

    Right I have spoken to our provider and they think the problem should be fixed. So far I have spotted no bad ad's yet but please report if you find any as I have reenabled them for now.

    Added to ban list, it appears google sometimes removes blocked url's as I blocked uniblue in the past but it has disappeared from the list.

    There's a bunch of ad's that keep auto redirecting to other webpages. All seem to be linked to http://avazudsp.net/tracking/ret/cret.php (then huge long spam URL as below if you want)

    Not exactly competition ads, but seemed easier than opening a new thread

    It appears uniblue use several domains which means I need to add them all, I have added another one that @john reported.
