MacKeeper suckers... you may be able to get a refund

"The class-action suit, filed in May 2014 on behalf of Pennsylvania resident Holly Yencha, contends that MacKeeper falsely flagged security and performance problems in order to coax consumers into paying $39.95 for the full version. The suit sought $5 million in damages.

It is close to being settled, according to recent documents filed in U.S. District Court for the Western District of Pennsylvania.

Under the settlement terms, ZeoBIT would put $2 million into a fund for those who want a refund, but admit no fault, which is customary in such settlements. It has yet to be approved by a judge."

And, I will NEVER buy products that have invasive pop up ads. Actually, I NEVER buy products that do web site ads. At least not because of the ads.

They got me, and I know better. I installed some utility or other that carried them as a rider. I caught my error about halfway through installation but it still took me a couple of hours to exorcise the thing.

They're a real PITA, worm their way into lots of other sites, but I know better now.
