I would like it to be better or easier to scan individual downloads directly in the downloads dossier in the dock, like I´m used to on my PC. But beside that it cleaned up my Air, increased the speed, removed languages I don't need, removed redundant files. I don't need some of the features, but thats me. I think it´s a decent piece of software, not very expensive either.

I gave it 4 stars, not 5 as Derekcurrie wrote, because I don´t think it´s perfect. As a fully paying private person, having nothing to do with Zeobit, I would rather see MacKeeper being developed than be put out of business for two reasons: I haven't found a better alternative and I want payoff for my purchase.
To you who consider this type of software: Use you healthy skepticism, read reviews, tests and forums, don´t believe the hallelujah choir, don´t believe this hate campaign.
MacKeeper is ok.

Thanks for your replay Derekcurrie. To answer your questions, Zeobit invited me by e-mail to give a review on MacUpdate, hence the "newbie-posting", the reason is obvious: they hope to get a counterbalance to all the negative postings. And what do I get in return? So far they haven´t offered me anything, and if they did I would not accept. I want good software for my new Mac, not bribes.

I don´t understand what you mean by this "no Mac expert..." I haven´t seen anything than self declared experts saying that MacKeeper is no good. I am a Mac user (since august), not a programmer or anything...

I asked "Mac experts" for tips on safety and utility software, and the answers from many people was "there is no virus for Mac...(yeah, right)", "don´t bother...", " a Mac does everything by itself in the OS", "I don't see your problem..."

I listened to one advise to install ClamXav, but I did not like it, and it was hard to uninstall, it clung hard to the machine. CCleaner is good, avast is also good, but tests by serious actors tells me that MacKeeper does this well, and my experience so far is ok. But thank you anyway for all the tips, but I don't want to spend my time testing them all.

I think I will convert back to PC, you Mac-people have to much feelings. Djeezes, its only a machine.
