As the spread of Covid-19 increases throughout southeast Michigan, many businesses have closed early, or closed altogether. Many have started working from home. Zak Computers will attempt to stay open and assist those in need of help with home office setups in this uncertain time. This will most likely affect our normal operation hours into early April. Expect hours to shift to 10AM-6PM Mon-Sat. We may stay open later depending on a day-by-day basis if necessary. We are also experiencing lower stock than usual due to shipping suppliers running thin, so we ask customers to call ahead and make sure of our availability and inventory. Zak Computers can also offer remote assistance via TeamViewer if leaving is not an option.
We hope everyone stays safe and healthy. Stay tuned here or on our official Facebook page for any updates. Learn More

No matter what browser you are running, whether it is Microsoft Edge/Internet Explorer, Mozilla Firefox, Google Chrome, or even Safari, you will be affected. Many users are already reporting it is being turned off automatically in their browser.
There may be alternate solutions for those who wish to continue using flash, but only time will tell. Learn More

If you have been having issues with the latest major Windows 10 update, we strongly advise backing up your data, removing any 3rd party antivirus(like Norton or McAffee), and trying again.
