MacKeeper installs a ton of garbage strewn all over your hard drive and it is very hard to find it all and get rid of it. These are the instructions from Zeobit, MacKeeper's developers:
Uninstalling MacKeeper

However, there are reports that this procedure leaves spyware behind. This site used to tell how to completely remove MacKeeper manually, but they took down the instructions because Zeobit threatened to sue them:

Uninstall MacKeeper | [Fix-KB]

All that I can suggest is that you download:

EasyFind (free)
Freeware applications and services for Mac - DEVONtechnologies
and set it to find file names only and to include invisible files, and search for all files with Zeobit or MacKeeper in their name, and uninstall them.

Lots of folks have reported this. Sometimes the problem is simply that you need to repair permissions:

OS X Maintenance And Troubleshooting
Item #1

Sometimes the problem is that you need to update Flash:

Uninstall the copy of Flash that you have installed with this uninstaller:
http://fpdownload.macromedia.com/get...player_osx.dmg
or

Then download the latest version of Flash directly from Adobe, and install it:
Adobe - Install a different version of Adobe Flash Player

In some cases the problem is too hard to track down and it becomes necessary to do a clean reinstall of Lion:
