    HELP!! I rather foolishly ticked the boxes on the configuration page to start and shut down my virtual machine when I start Parallels.

    I don't like this option and want to revert to the standard but I can't now get to the configuration page as it is only available when the second operating system has shut down and when that happens Parallels also shuts down now!!

    Is there a way of accessing this now or do I have to reinstall parallels all over again?

    All help gratefully received

    Hi, this is just easy - when you know how to do it - I had the same problem.

    Go and look for your PVS file and open it with any text-editor.
    Change the lines for autostart end autoend from 1 to 0 and it should work as you want it...
