Just for preventative measures i was thinking about getting 'Mackeeper" as a few times i've gotten the "you computer may be at risk" although i never download anything i just delete it and it goes away. does apple recommend it? any reviews comments?


MacBook Pro, Mac OS X (10.6.7)

    "...the "you computer may be at risk"..."

     

    is a big come one. Don't gum up your Mac with junk that pretends to prevent something that isn't going to happen.

    First, nobody here speaks for Apple. Second, Apple doesn't recommend any third-party software.

     

    My personal recommendation is that you avoid MacKeeper like the plague. It does nothing useful and the developer is dishonest.

    thanks sig for your reply understood..

     

    and thanks linc for the advise: P.S...

     

    First, its a discussion room and i didn't expect anyone to speak for apple, if needed i would contact them directly, it was just a question. jeez thanks for making my first "post on this really pleasant, for future ref, if you really want to help great! just dont come off as such a douche ( and i mean that in the nicest way seriously)

     

    Second if Apple did not recommend any third party software, their app department would be pretty scarce as most of these are 3rd party apps,

     

    However i really appreciate the time you took to reply, i'll take your word for it and not bother with mackeeper.

     

    thanks again.
