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:

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