    I have been using Parallels 3 on my new Mac Book Pro (LED) Model. 15". 2GB Ram. I have been running Windows XP Media Center Edition on it. For the most part, it works great but since I have installed it I am getting frequent crashes on my system (8-15 per day). The entire system locks-up including the cursor. I have tried runing 'top' in the background to see whats happening but nothing goes up before the crash.

    I am only running a chat program on Windows XP, that my company uses for our intranet. This is my only real need to run Windows at all.

    The crash even happens when Paralles isn't in the foreground and even when it's not running, however I think there might be a few apps (in Startup Items) that run even if it's not running?

    I'm not 100% sure it is Parallels, but I have not experienced a crash when it's uninstalled and all Parallels items are removed.

    Was wondering if anyone else is experiencing this behavior. I love this software and I'd like to use it but right now, I can't.
