    Hey people,

    I bought a copy of Parallels 2.x way back in March this year. 19/03/2007 to be exact. So, having used it for a few months without any problems whatsoever, I found that a virus of some sort existed in my virtual HDD. Anyways, as a result I decided to uninstall Parallels with the thinking that I could re-install it from scratch as a fresh copy.

    I correctly removed it from my Mac and this Is where I'm a little stuck. Having downloaded a copy of Parallels, When I go to input my license key, Parallels tells me that the key is no longer valid!

    How can I re-install Parallels? I've already paid around £50GBP for the software, so I don't see why I should have to buy another license key. Can anyone help me out?

    Thanks in advance. =)

    Be aware that there are two license systems for Paralles. If you have bought the UK version via Avanquest Software (could even be via Apple Store) you need a special version of Parallels from Avanquest, downloading versions from Parallels directly will only result in an invalid license message.
