"Active debugger" errors

    I'm trying to get a number of different simple games (Big Fish or Popcap-type games) in Parallels for my wife. Most crash for various reasons, but a number of them simply exit with the error:

    "This application cannot run with an active debugger in memory. Please unload the debugger and restart the application".

    ...This happens in VMWare as well.

    Games that produce this error include Yahoo! Trivia Machine, Zuma, Chuzzle, Bejewelled, and others.

    I've found very little information on this error, though I notice someone posted about the error a couple of months ago here: http://forums.parallels.com/thread11415.html

    ...And blamed it on "Trymark copy protection".

    Has anyone found a solution to this? Is there anything Parallels can do about this? At this point, playing these games is the only reason for us to use Parallels at all =)
