    What does this mean?

    We are able to perform the same in warranty repairs that Apple would be able to do for you on your Apple iMac, Mac Pro and Apple laptops like the MacBook, MacBook Air or MacBook Pro

    We hardly have to send any systems into Apple since we have the parts shipped to us

    This may vary with the Apple iPad and Apple iPod. In some instances we have to mail those into Apple since NO Apple Authorized Service Center can replace out individual parts in those devices.

    At this time we are not Authorized to work on the Apple iPhone or the Apple Watch

  • Do You Provide 24/7 Computer Monitoring Software?

  • Yes, Through our CRC Pro Support program.

    This software program will work on servers and workstations and gives us a snapshot of the overall health of your computer in order to help us get to issues before they become serious.

  • What is Malware?

  • Malware, or malicious software, is a blanket termed used to describe any piece of computer software which directly acts against the computer user with malicious intent. This can include computer viruses, worms, Trojan horses, ransomware, spyware, adware, and scareware.

    The purpose of Malware can vary by design, but in general malware is used to either disrupt computer usage, gain access to user information, or to extort money from a computer user. Malware can come from many different sources including “drive-by downloads” from visiting websites, downloading infected programs, clicking social media links to infected websites, and email attachments.

  • Can Macs get Malware?

  • Do You Provide Remote Support?

  • Yes, We use a program called TeamViewer.

    You can download it here. It will provide you with a unique username and password that will allow us to remote in and view and take control of your system so we can assist you with most issues. There are some cases where we need to have the system brought in for evaluation.
