    No no no no no. Never. It's basically Malware for your Mac. Search the forums. You'll see.

    MacKeeper is a virus. Avoid it at all costs.

    Install an adblocker so you'll never see advertisements for it on websites.

    ^^ is bad, last time i saw it i grabbed my friends laptop and just trashed the thing without asking permission :eek: expel the demon.
    :rolleyes: well maybe i did say hay let's get rid of it it's bad but that's less of a fun story
    think it's a bit more complex than just trashing the app but been ages so cant remember
