As much as I loathe MacKeeper, chances are this was pure coincidence. Generally speaking, software issues do not cause hardware problems. If your hard drive truly was faulty, it would have failed to boot regardless of whether MacKeeper was installed or not.

Though I agree with your overall sentiment - MacKeeper is rubbish.

Liquid and computers don't mix. It might seem simple, but we see an incredible amount of people post here about spills. Keep drinks and other liquids away from your expensive electronics!
