Click on library .

( c ) PrivilegedHelperTools

com.mackeeper.Adware.AdwareAnalyzer.AdwareAnalyzerPrivilegedHelper

Enter in User Library - click on finder > Go > hold option key > Library , these are the locations where malware hide .

( a ) Application Support

Folder - com.mackeeper.AdwareAnalyzer

Folder - com.mackeeper.MacKeeper

Folder - com.mackeeper.Mackeeper.Mackeeper.Helper

Folder - Mackeeper - and its subfolder - statistic 2

Folder - Mackeeper 3 - and its subfolder - NE notifications

These folders / subfolders and related .plist are dragged and dropped to the trash .

Also if the app is in download folder it is moved to the trash .

Restart the Mac from apple logo and empty the trash .

What do you see is downloading in iCloud Drive is it finder side bar , you can also use malware bytes anti malware for Mac , sometimes enabling a root user account then scanning the system with help of malware bytes removes malware ( but that is to be done in a very rarest case ) .

Depends on what's being added to your iCloud.


I wrote a free/shareware tool specifically to deal with MacKeeper, though it now deals with pretty much all adware/malware. It will search and remove MacKeeper without payment:
