Thanks for this.
I have not started the procedure yet, as the instructions begin . . .
If you have used MacKeeper to encrypt any data, unencrypt it now.

If you remove MacKeeper without unencrypting your data first, you will not be able to access it later.
This only applies to data encrypted with MacKeeper,
      - and not data encrypted using Mac OS built-in encryption services
      - or using any other program.

I dont know what encryption is.   :)
So I dont know if I have done it inadvertently  :)  :)

Can you explain this for me?
Your help has saved me hundreds of hours of internet surfing.

encryption is coding data so - that no o,ne can read it, without the proper decryption key  http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Encryption

if you're in doubt, backup your data, and do a fresh install
on another drive - so you have the old one to revert to - if needed
