Gator Eating up Google Adwords Money
that yellow underline click counts even though it goes elsewhere

I'd say I'm pretty mad. I've tested it out and found that the yellow underlines that appear on a users computer from gator scumware.

I was upset enough when it took users to my site, BUT NOW...

When a google user clicks a yellow underlined keyword in my google adwords box it costs me money (because google counts it) even though the link goes to yellow underlined site.

I'm sure it's not a huge problem, but annoying and costly none the less.

I'd say, if you have proof of it, I would call Google right away about it. Such things have a way of really making people like us mad.

Hey Gregario, you could email us but I'm not positive I'd get it. Can you fill out a spam report and mention your nick, plus the keyword phrase or ad that's being targeted? I'll ask someone to verify what program is doing this.
