Kindly use our search feature regarding comments about MacKeeper. I think you'll find that the majority of comments regarding it are negative. Nevertheless you should see for yourself.

I recommend using OnyX which is free, safe, and highly recommended by most folks here.

Sorry for the post I had no idea one could do such a search, I will try this next time before I create a new post, I am relatively new to this forum, so I do not want to anger the Forum Oracles/Gods/staffmembers...

Do not worry about it as the staffers are really quite, sweet, cool tempered dudes who would much rather help you than rant and rave. The only good things ever posted about Mackeeper is by the developers.

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!

LOL - You got that one right!!

And they're not shy either. They've spammed all over the web and when that didn't work, they broke down and started paying for advertising. I'm not sure you can find a Apple/Mac site where they're not advertising - trying to lure money outta the new Windows switchers.

I'm glad I moved to OS X 5 years ago instead of this year or I may have been lured into giving them some of my money.

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.

And then mate after that, maybe antivirus software for all these virus things?
