Ski Search Removal Guide

Do you know what Ski Search is?

Ski Search is the newest addition to SuperWeb’s collection of adware. Our researchers recommend that you remove this application, because it has been classified as an infection. Ski Search is a program that has one single purpose -- to display commercial advertisements of unreliable nature. The advertisements are mostly supplied by various shady third parties of unknown origin. Therefore, this program should not be trusted, and we encourage you to remove it, provided that you have been infected with this adware.

Ski Search displays various commercial advertisements in the form of coupons, in-texts, pop-ups, banners, and so on. The advertisements could promote anything from online shopping websites to system utility tools. For the most part the content promoted via Ski Search is legitimate. However, due to irresponsible policies implemented by the developers of this program, cyber criminals might also use this program to promote some fraudulent business venture.

Users might be subjected to misleading or fake advertisements that could redirect them to infected websites. Or they might be duped into entering their banking credentials on fake shopping websites, resulting in theft. Alternatively, Ski Search could redirect users to a website that promotes some kind of system utility tool -- only the tool could be fake, allowing the PC to be infected with rogue programs, ransomware, rootkits, spyware, browser hijackers, or other infections.

Ski Search has been developed by SuperWeb LLC., which specializes in developing adware applications. However, all of their applications are simply rebranded versions of older infections, so when we talk about the dangers posed by Ski Search, the same can be said about Fruit Basket, Wild West, Zoom zoom, Swift Record, and so on. Therefore, you should also remove any of the aforementioned infections if you happen to encounter them.

All programs developed by SuperWeb have a dedicated website. In this case Ski Search is advertised at, but you can’t get infected with it from the website, as the download button does not work. Therefore, you can only get infected with the adware by installing software bundles downloaded from freeware distribution websites.

In any case, we are of the opinion that you should remove Ski Search due to its unreliable nature. The app has been developed by a company known for developing adware that promotes infected websites. Ski Search is no exception, as it also can display fake ads that could compromise your system’s security. Therefore, we recommend that you remove this infection ASAP.
