Is there a way to hide an application from third party Uninstallers like MacKeeper?

I am using an application that blocks websites and everything else I want. When its blockers are running, I set it so that I can’t uninstall the application in the native way. But, third party Uninstallers like MacKeeper can easily uninstall the application without any problems.

So, I am wondering if there is a way to hide an application from third party Uninstallers.

Thank y’all.

  • what if you install it under an admin account and then log in with a limited account with all restrictions turned on so you don't have the ability to uninstall anything. Is that moving in the direction of the solution you are looking for? – Steve Chambers Jan 30 at 16:59
  • Hmmm I have to try it in few hours. I will get back to ya – user319265 Jan 30 at 19:22
  • I just tried it. And it won’t work. I grant access to every application that I have installed except for MacKeeper. I did this for a test, of course. But when I login to the limited account,, I get a. Pop-up on startup asking if I want to grant and allow MacKeeper to run or not...When this pop-up , it disables other applications to automatically start up, especially the application that I use to block websites and etc. For me, the blocking application is useless if it doesn’t automatically starts up. – user319265 Jan 31 at 2:26
  • I obviously can block every third party Uninstallers out there. But it would take me a week or longer since there are hundred upon hundreds of Uninstallers. I am disabled so everything I do is time consuming. If there was a list of every exited Uninstallers, I would just copy and paste their window titles or application names (or even their process names) into the blocking application <-------- That would be easy! – user319265 Jan 31 at 2:52
