Hello Group.

My computer automatically sent me a MacKeeper offer. I got cold feet after I downloaded it and stopped before doing a scan or anything like that, but still.

This is for an iMac.

My Q is, how do I get rid of it? When I try to put it in the waste paper basket, it won't let me.

Thank you!

Because this is such a (expletive) piece of code someone has come up with a Uninstaller for MacKeeper. Download and get rid of it forever

Here's what I found at the link to the uninstaller:
We are sorry to inform you that this Solution has been suspended for a brief period as FixKB have received a formal complaint and we must investigate our position before taking any further action.
Although our comments section is still open and we will receive and read you comments, all previous comments and future comments will be suspended until this is resolved.

Now what? Thanks for any reply

Try this LINK instead. Removing MacKeeper is not as difficult as some have stated.
