According to the Parallels Manual, uninstalling parallels desktop is as easy as running the "Uninstall Parallels Desktop.app" that comes in the dmg file. Whenever I try to run it, however, it tells me I don't have Parallels Desktop installed... Yes, I do.. right where it put it, in /Applications/Parallels directory. Version is 5160, on Leopard. The reason I am uninstalling it is that the stupid smart sharing windows app entries keep getting inserted in the launch services database even though I have VM security high and smart sharing disabled. I'm tired of fighting it... and to be honest, VMWare Fusion runs a lot better in general with less apparent drain on the system. The launchd thing just ticks me off so bad I'm done with it. Please advise how to properly uninstall if the uninstaller tells me I don't have Parallels installed. Thanks.
