We can not contact to Google to find the real reason because we always receive the same answer again and again:
Looks like the only reason is that we have own freeware software site with millions grateful users but also there are lot of Google advertisers who sell the similar software and buy advertising at Google, so in order to prevent possible "losses" from advertisers, free software must die.... So pity....

[edit reason] See TOS. [/edit]
But the real issue is another. We always wanted to work with such respectful partner like Google and if we have received a notification like "Do not use Adwords to drive traffic" or "Change ads position" or something like that before Google disabled our account, we would make all changes immediately within couple of hours. But everything we receive is message about account termination.
We, publishers, do everything what Google wants, we hear you Google, but looks like Google does not hear us. Until then you can not sleep well because your account may be disabled without any reason as well. Just another tiny publisher.
P.S. We still do not know about earned money for July and part of August. This money was earned without any invalid clicks or some tricks and we hope at least to get them... We still hope...
It's kind of ridiculous that there is never a warning message from Google upon termination.
Sometimes there is, unless previous postings about warnings from Google haven't been true.
Unfortunately, we can't really do anything for you as your problem is with Google and the resolution has to be arranged with them.
Fortunately, we have some great posts on things to do if one should find their AdSense account banned. If you were innocent and had not violated Google's AdSense TOS, there are some things you can do to try to get reinstated.
Please read the following threads for some good advice.
