A knowledgeable repairman went through our mac and thoroughly cleaned it of all traces of MacKeeper, then made sure all of the updates were installed properly. It has worked very well since then. Now I research THOROUGHLY any new software I'm interested in buying, then research it some more before finally deciding. In my humble opinion, less is more.
If you don't need it A LOT, don't buy it and don't risk creating problems. Dealing with OS updates is difficult enough.
Cyndy, I agree 100%. Less is definitely more when it comes to 3rd party applications.
