My version of MacKeeper is not working normally. I cannot do a clean to get rid of unwanted stuff!
TBH mate, you shouldn't be using that crap-ware as it is. Totally unneeded, unnecessary and more pain and trouble than it is ever worth. Get rid and let OS X look after itself.
OP, what is it that MacKeeper does that makes you of the opinion that you require it?
MacKeeper is crap. Get rid of it.
Really. Mackeeper is malware.
If anyone hasn't responded yet Get rid of it. PRONTO !
what do you guys think about malwarebytes? I've been using it and it's great!
Malwarebytes Anti-Malware is simply a rebranded and expanded version of AdwareMedic. All it does it help you remove adware and some malware from your Mac once infected. No harm in having it on your drive.
I can recommend reading the developer’s blog as well, he provides some good coverage on current (and concurrent) security threats specifically for the Mac: https://blog.malwarebytes.org/author/treed/ (archive: http://www.thesafemac.com)
Consider removing it, really (this tool can help you with that).
Which unwanted stuff do you want to remove? Then we can guide you in the right direction.
It is a virus, literally.
I think there is a consensus here... ;-)
It (MacKeeper) tells me that I am wasting nearly 600MB of disk space (of my 2.4GB flash drive) with useless junk, just after having installed El Capitan on my MBA. Is this not true?
If MacKeeper is causing problems, then it IS working normally! Get rid of it.
I have now deleted it! Thanks for the advice (to a doddery old septuagenarian)!
See, it can't even get that right. I wouldn't trust MK's definition of anything, "junk" may well be system files
If you paid for it, get a refund
i know what it does, i actually asked for you opinion.... but thanks!
Thx!! DetectX is great!! Been looking around for a program like this!
