Hi, I've got a serious performance issue. I run a XP Bootcamp Partition on my MacBookPro which works fine. I also use Parallels Desktop to run this Bootcamp Partition in a VM. This worked perfectly until this week. Two things changed then- I installed Snow Leopard and I installed the latest update for Parallels Desktop. Since then I've got the problem- beside the already known issues that the HDD can not be accessed when starting the VM after having started Bootcamp I've got a serious performance issue. The VM starts pretty fast- but as soon as I start an application (like Adobe Indesign- I used it a lot in a VM before) the VM works VERY slow and also OSX is nearly unusable. The process prl_vm_app consumes > 100% auf cpu. Even when I (which takes minutes...) shutdown Indesign and no other tasks are running in XP, the cpu usage stays high and VM/OSX can hardly be used. I tried deinstalling Parallels Desktop and re-installed the "old" version from my CD but it then installs the newest version of parallels tools- this doesn't help anything. Anyone having similar problems?
