how to uninstall MacBooster
We are decidedly not impressed with MacBooster. Ok, we’ll put aside the general complaint that apps like this do very little if anything to improve performance (in fact, in our tests, we find almost always quite the opposite). We have a bigger beef with MacBooster.
Indeed, we rate it even more pesky than it’s obvious inspiration: MacKeeper… 😳
Aside from the fact that MacBooster’s uninstaller leaves a number of executables and other binary files hidden on the user’s system, there’s also the rather cheeky use of ‘com.apple.UninstallerAD” as a bundle identifier in their uninstaller app.
I really don’t think the folks at Cupertino are going to appreciate that, but more importantly the use of a misleading bundle identifier reveals a lot about the developers’ intentions.
Meanwhile, whether you use our apps or not, steer clear of MacBooster.
If you’d rather dig it out yourself than use DetectX, here’s the list of paths we have so far:
