First, open Finder. If you do not see your hard drive in Finder's sidebar, go to Finder > Preferences > Sidebar, and under "DEVICES," check the box for hard disk. Once completed, click "Macintosh HD" from the sidebar back in Finder, then click System. Next, in the search field in the upper right, enter "mackeeper." Be sure to select "System" for the location that Finder is checking, as shown below:

You probably also want to select your hard drive again, and this time select "Library," and perform the same search. Like

Thanks. I followed those procedures and discovered 3 Mackeeper traces in system. I securely emptied them from trash. Hope that's the end of it. Like

Thanks for letting us know. By the way, do you happen to recall the names of the files, so we can inform other users to look out for them? Like
