Vix Player and MacKeeper

Moderator Contact Form Message

I used the recommended process to get a shutter count for my 645D and on the page for that it told me to download a program that turned out to be VIX Player, Opera Mackeeper and Chrome. After doing all that (although In was hesitant, but I trusted the Forum) I then noticed to shutter count box to click on. I was able to put all but the MacKeeper in my Trash, but when I try to move MacKeeper to Trash it asks for my password, which I have not entered. Not sure what to do. All these programs were on the Forum site where I just tried to get a shutter count. Is it safe to enter my password to get rid of the MacKeeper program?

Did you click on an ad perhaps? The shutter count checker should work directly after you upload the file.
