    MacKeeper Pop-Up annoying - how to kill
    How do I kill the "MacKeeper" pop-up? That's the only pop-up that seems to get through to my iMac.

    Thanks

    I'd quit visiting the site where it pops up. I'm certainly sick of not being able to get away from their ads. They even had an ad running on speediest. These guys are slamming the entire web it seems like just playing on the fears of all those recently removed from Windows.
    I cannot be held responsible for the things that come out of my mouth.
    In the Windows world, most everything folks don't understand is called a virus.

    Are you using Safari?

    If so this may do the trick:-

    http://safariadblock.com/

    For Firefox etc try AdBlock Plus. Just Google it.
    Hang on to those original install discs like grim death! Using OS X.7 or later make a bootable USB thumb drive before running Installer!

    Interesting solution, thanks for the lead.

    BTW what's a typical "donation" for these sorts of products? This is new to me.

    Cheers

    See how well it works and if you are completely satisfied, maybe $5 through PayPal.

    Trust you did not actually download this crapware as it can be the very devil to get rid of?
