Mackeeper

post #1 of 5
Thread Starter 

MacKeeper ads pop up constantly. I can't get rid of them.  I tried blocking cookies in security and privacy. No luck.



 



Suggestions?  Thanks.

I use AdBlock, Ghostery, DoNotTrackMe, and Disconnect for that sort of thing. Don’t know if any are redundant; don’t care.

 

I use Get Off My Lawn for social networking blocking, but that’s a different story. :p

Oh, certainly. They’re just extensions. You can find them on Apple’s extension page.

If you don't mind poking under the hood of your system, you can edit your /etc/hosts file to block known advertising domains. I prefer this method to using browser-specific extensions since it works at the system level and does not depend on what browser I am using. For references, see http://lifehacker.com/5817447/how-to-block-unwanted-ads-in-all-applications-and-speed-up-web-browsing-with-the-hosts-file.
