I've been using Parallels through versions 3 and 4, and kept a very simple Windows XP Pro virtual machine to use Microsoft Office.
After upgrading to Parallels 5 (as well as the newest build 9308) MS Outlook keeps hanging. This happens after I return from a Parallels suspended state, though I normally close out of Outlook before I put the virtual machine on suspend. When I return from a suspended state, open up Outlook, and create a new mail message, the program hangs. A force quit is required.
When I then attempt to shutdown and reboot Windows, I always get an alert that a program called CPInterceptor is not responding. I have to force quit this program before shutdown will proceed. I have no clue what this CPInterceptor is, and I've never had an error from this before.
I haven't made any changes to my virtual machine other than upgrading to Parallels 5 and installing the appropriate version of Parallels Tools.
