How to turn off automatic MacKeeper updates

Remember that any MacKeeper 4 version will try to automatically update to MacKeeper 5 within the first 24 hours. To turn this off and remain with MacKeeper 4:  

1. Open Terminal


2. Copy and paste the following command: 

defaults write com.mackeeper.MacKeeperAgent MKMacKeeperUpdater -dict-add "MKMacKeeperUpdaterLastFireDateKey" -date "2100-01-01 00:00:00 +0000"; /bin/launchctl unload -w ~/Library/LaunchAgents/com.mackeeper.MacKeeperAgent.plist; /bin/launchctl load -w ~/Library/LaunchAgents/com.mackeeper.MacKeeperAgent.plist;


3. Press the Enter key to complete
