    The most effective method for complete app removal is manual deletion:

    Look in ~/Library/LaunchAgents (where ~ denotes your home folder), in /Library/LaunchAgents and in /Library/LaunchDaemons for a .plist file related to MacKeeper. Then trash that .plist file.

    Thanks GGJstudios.
    I followed that guide and found a hidden system file, After deleting and a quick restart the console messages are gone!
