It Caims to be anti-virus. But it slows down your system and makes it unstable, in more cases then not.
I will echo one other sentiment using non-standard font:
NOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO!MacBook Pro, Mac OS X (10.6.8), Macmini 10.6.8

MacKeeper, being poorly written, acts like highly invasive malware* that can de-stablize your operating system. It is also unethically marketed and a rip-off, offering nothing that is not available for free.. Positive reviews of it are known to have been paid for by the developers, Zeobit.
Further opinion on it and how to uninstall MacKeeper malware:
Do NOT download or use the ‘MacKeeper uninstaller’ from the Zeobit site, as this will cause even more damage to your operating system.
This is also worth reading:
Equally phoney is iAntivirus:
* The expression ‘malware’ is a general term used by computer professionals to mean a variety of forms of hostile, intrusive, or annoying software.

Out of interest, is this pop up showing up while you are experimenting with Google Chrome, perhaps looking to see what Chrome offers.
I found myself with situation like this recently and promptly deleted Chrome. No further invitations to download MacKeeper.
