    Mackeeper is the next best thing to malware anyway. If you have it installed forget about updating it, get rid of it.

    Sorry I don't have a Mac but this seemed to be an important bit of news as quite a few members on here use Macs that I know. It does say it has 20 Million installs so that is most Mac owner isn't it? :whistle::p;)

    I think most switched on Mac users stay well away from Mackeeper, I certainly do.

    But thanks for the heads up, as there may be some new OS X users on here, who might have been tempted.

    The invitation to install Mackeeper is one of those things that appears in a popup if you browse a certain type of website :whistle:
    There really is nothing useful about it at all.

    I can't think of a Windows equivalent really but I'm sure you get what I mean. The may have caught 20 million people out but I don't believe that they are genuine, informed, installs.

    Cheeky sod!

    66 million at the last count and still rising, now that Microsucks have f****d up yet again.
