MacKeeper is not a wise choice, you'd better uninstall it completely as the guide Buddyme2 suggested. To clean your Mac, you can choose the freeware like MacClean and OnyX. Alternatively, you can choose the paid one like CleanMyMac - $40. 


To speed up our Macs, we can also do those stpes:

1. Reduce autostarting programs in Login Items

2. Verify and repair disk permissions from Disk Utility 

3. Upgrade to a newer version OS X

4. Reinstall from scratch

5. Upgrade your hard drive to an SSD/Upgrade RAM.

Download Malwarebytes Antimalware for Mac, open the DMG file and move the app to your Desktop or Program Folder. 

Start the app and scan for Adware.

Go to the menu Scanner and Choose Take System Snapshot from there.

Copy the result and paste it here.
