"\\.PSF\.Home\Desktop is not accessible" error
I have Boot Camp with Parallels installed. It works fine if I run it in Parallels, but when I run Boot Camp stand-alone, I get the following error message:
"\\.PSF\.Home\Desktop is not accessible. You might not have permission to use this network resource. Contact the administrator of this server to find out if you have access permissions.
The system cannot find the file specified."
This stops certain things from working, such as some program installations, etc. so I'd like to fix this. Any suggestions as to how I can get about doing this? From what I understand, this problem is stemming from the fact that it's trying to use the Mac desktop onto my Windows desktop. I wouldn't mind disabling this feature, but when I try (at least I think I'm doing it) it still doesn't fix it - I still get the error.
Windows desktop sharing and so on...

You need to disable the "Shared Profile" option.
Desktop is not accessible error running Parallals 6 in Lion
I just ran into this same problem when upgrading to Parallels 6 under Lion. I tried reinstalling the whole application with no luck. I've tried reinstalling the virtual tools (Vernon Stone's suggestion) several times but no luck for me. The only thing I found that works successfully was [COLOR="Red"]KurtT's workaround... i.e. Turn off the setting in Virtual Machine -> Configure -> Shared Profile -> Desktop to Desktop in Windows. Leave all the other settings on (Documents to My Documents, etc.)[/COLOR].
Windows cannot access \\psf\Home\Desktop - P7
I was using Parallels 6 with Win 7 Pro on top of Snow Leopard with no problems. Upgraded to Lion and still no problems. I have now upgraded to Parallels 7 and everything works except when Windows starts I get the message "Windows cannot access \\psf\Home\Desktop". When I click OK on that message, everything seems to work fine.
I looked at Control Panel, Programs and Features but I could not find the install of Parallel Tools. So I exited Windows and clicked on the Virtual Machine menu but Reinstall Parallel Tools is greyed out.
Now I do not know what to do.
Thanks for any assistance.
Solved forcibly by Parallels
Thanks for all your replies.
Because I could not get anywhere, and was still within the free phone support period with Parallels, I rang them. The tried the usual things already suggested, but all to no avail. Eventually, the technician downloaded Revo Uninstaller, and forced the uninstallation of the rogue Windows program. He reckoned that it might be caused because of remote installation from a network drive. Whatever the reason, the rogue program has now gone.
Sometimes, it appears that it may be a problem with the rogue program, and nothing to do with Parallels. How you find that out, I don't know!
