How to Delete Blueskymotions
Open task manager
Look for the Blueskymotions process
Select it and click on End task
Open the file location to delete Blueskymotions
Access the Task Manager by pressing together the Ctrl + Alt + Del keys and then selecting Task Manager.
Open Processes and there try to find a process with the name of the unwanted software. If you find it, select it with the right button of the mouse and click on the Open File Location option.
If you don’t see a “Blueskymotions” process in the Task Manager, look for another suspicious process with an unusual name. It is likely that the unwanted process would be using lots of RAM and CPU so pay attention to the number of resources each process is using.
Tip: If you think you have singled out the unwanted process but are not sure, it’s always a good idea to search for information about it on the Internet – this should give you a general idea if the process is a legitimate one from a regular program or from your OS or if it is indeed likely linked to the adware.
If you find another suspicious process, open its File Location too.
Once in the File Location folder for the suspicious process, start testing all of the files that are stored there by dragging them to our free online scanner available below.

This scanner is free and will always remain free for our website's users.
This file is not matched with any known malware in the database. You can either do a full real-time scan of the file or skip it to upload a new file. Doing a full scan with 64 antivirus programs can take up to 3-4 minutes per file.
Each file will be scanned with up to 64 antivirus programs to ensure maximum accuracy
If the scanner finds malware in any of the files, return to the Processes tab in the Task Manager, select the suspected process, and then select the End Process option to quit it.
Go back to the folder where the files of that process are located and delete all of the files that you are allowed to delete. If all files get deleted normally, exit the folder and delete that folder too. If one or more of the files showed an error message when you tried to delete them, leave them for now and return to try to delete them again once you’ve completed the rest of the guide.

Blueskymotions is a browser hijacker that can easily be integrated with any of the popular web browsers and alter the way they normally operate. The aim of these alternations is to strategically place the nagging advertisements and sponsored web links on the screen so that it is very hard for users to overlook them and they eventually click on as many as possible. These clicks normally mean a few cents of pay-per-click revenue for the developers who own the browser hijacker. That’s why they try to fill your screen with different pay-per-click ads (pop-ups, banners, text messages, and redirect links) and place them in such a way that you inevitably land on them.
Is Blueskymotions a virus?

For instance, they may keep track of your recent search queries, your browsing history and your favorite web pages, your social media activity and the adverts you interact with. The collected data is then analyzed and used to generate new customized pop-up offers, redirect links and deals that will match your interests.

Moreover, many people fear that they may accidentally click on malicious ads or misleading web links that may contain viruses and threats like Ransomware and Trojans while they are trying to navigate through the constantly popping ads.
