How do I completely remove an Ad I created from my Adsense account?

I created an ad with the wrong Ad size. This is not an editable field.  So I cannot fix the Ad directly.  I am also using a naming convention so that I can more easily track my Ads. What I am trying to do is remove(delete) this Ad so I can reuse the name I assigned to it.  So far all attempts to delete this Ad have only resulted in hiding the Ad.  This Ad is not used on any pages and even after more than a month of inactivity, I am not able to use the Ad name because the Ad still exists (hidden).

Surely there has to be a way to recover an Ad name.

Any help is appreciated.

Hi macarrillo1,
>>..This is not an editable field.  So I cannot fix the Ad directly.
Can you give more details why you can't fix the Ad directly? Do you use in some shared source with limited write-permission?

I have a Google Adsense account and I am using their tools to create Ads.  For some reason, when you create an ad you cannot edit or change the size.  I can change all other options, like color.  In addition you can't delete an Ad, you can only hide it.  I read in some other source that if I did not assign a hidden ad to any page (not used) it would automatically delete itself after a week or two.  This is not the case.  It has been well over a month (almost two) and the Ad still exists.

I got it to work!  What I did was rename the bad Ad to a different name.  This did not previously work, but for some reason is now allowing me to rename the bad Ad to something else, thus freeing the name I need.

Thanks for your help!
