I tried to backup my Mac to iDisk using Backup.app 3.2 and after a while I got a Failed Backup message and a Console onscreen with 4000 MacKeeper messages, or seems like that many, and I DON'T OWN NEVER DOWNLOADED STAYED AWAY FROM MACKEEPER!  Look like this (a random sample).

 

Somebody please help!  Sooner is better!

    I was having a similar problem and resolved it using Terminal per another thread:

    https://discussions.apple.com/thread/2405167?start=0&tstart=0

     

    Good luck.

    This has been happening to me as well!

     

    After an unsuccessful live chat attempt, I just called the MacKeeper 24/7 Tech Support number 1.888.572.5876

     

    After refusing to re-load their MacKeeper application trial offer from their website to then re-remove it, after refusing to allow them to connect with my computer remotely, and after sharing choice statements regarding my dislike of their "trial" offer, I finally convinced them to help me remove every last vestige of their program from my HD.

     

    The "technician" walked me through about a dozen locations to find traces of com.zeobit.MacKeeper on my computer. Dragged them to the trash and emptied it.

     

    I am waiting for an update to download then I am going to restart my computer to see if these messages stop. Will let you know what happens.

     

    Just re-started computer and my console messages no longer contain the series of messages every 10 seconds as noted above!!! The search <and destroy mission> for com.zeobit.MacKeeper files worked!

     

    Burn in Dante's Inferno forever MacKeeper!
