    Hey Guys i was wondering if you could help me out...

    I have a MacBook Pro (13-inch, Early 2001) with OS X Yosemite (Version 10.10.1) on it and i have a problem with MACKEEPER in SAFARI. About every couple of minutes MacKeeper pops up in a new tab and says i need to run a clean. I have installed it before and i uninstalled it by putting it in the trash and emptying the trash. I don't understand why it keeps popping up even when i have the "Block pop-ups windows" checked in my preferences....? can anyone help me solve this issue? i have read multiple threads and none of them seem to help...


    Thanx

    MacKeeper will actually go away without a fight. It's anything else that you may have installed after the fact. Like CleanMyMac, InstallMac or Genieo, etc.

    No i haven't installed anything after i installed MacKeeper. I can't use the link you posted bc i don't have MacKeeper installed on my Mac at all... so i can't use the "uninstall" feature.

    thanx

    To uninstall MacKeeper completely takes a little bit more effort. It Never goes away w/o a fight!

    In that case it sounds like you already have some of the others which are acting as adware promoting it.

    I would suggest http://support.apple.com/en-us/ht203987
