I downloaded MacKeeper. I obviously now want to get rid of it, as my computer is slower, I have many pop ups, and links to things on Safari that I don't want to be linked on.

I dragged it to the trash, and emptied the trash, as that was what was recommended. Turns out there is an uninstall function?? Irrespective, still having the same problems. I've looked on activity monitor, and can't find any mention of it left.

How do I get rid of it? It's really annoying!

Hi Tom,

There are different versions of MacKeeper. Here is an excellent link with instructions and a cleaning utility (AdwareMedic) to help you clean your system regardless of which version you have. Be sure to scroll to the bottom of the article for the links to the instructions and the download for AdwareMedic.
