Hi there I was wondering as it takes a long time to launch parallels 7 now on my mac after upgrading from P3, 1st. Windows xp welcome window appears and you need to push start 2nd. After pushing start it launches into the administration startup - this is corrupted so I created a Guest user 3rd. I then need to wait for all windows to load, and then Log-off and logon to my Guest user - uncorrupted one. Is it possible to bypass some of these windows which all take time, and launch like I did in P3 straight to Guest user window instead. Thanks for any help with this query. I am using mac with 4gb ram, plenty of memory P7, Windows xp Sp3.
