Lockup/Crash with Windows Update My parents just got a new 20" iMac Core 2 Duo running 10.4.10. I put a new copy (not an upgrade) of Parallels 3.0 on it. I installed Windows XP Home (I'm not sure exactly what version-- it's not SP2, and it doesn't have Windows Firewall). Installation and setup went fine, and I had no problems installing the only two pieces of software they want to use: Norton Internet Security 2007 and Quicken Premier 2007. Once I started using Quicken, however, I started getting frequent blue screen reboots and lockups. Can't really figure out a pattern for when they happen. I even got some while playing the copy of Pinball that comes with Windows. Most of these just give the error message of "STOP", followed by a string of letters and numbers along the lines of 0000000x8e. I believe it's the blue screen in this post: http://forums.parallels.com/thread6263.html. Occasionally I get a "PAGE_FAULT_IN_NONPAGED_AREA". If someone will tell me where to find the Windows crash logs, I'll be happy to paste more exact information. I've tried running Windows Update, thinking that a fully updated operating system might fix these problems. However, both Automatic Update and web-based Windows Update just state that they're installing the updates without actually doing so, and then lock up when I try to cancel them. How can I install these updates, and then get Parallels running smoothly enough that my dad can use Quicken on it? I'm moving out of town in a week, so I need to accomplish this during that time. Thanks in advance! PS- I have an uninstalled copy of Parallels 2.5 as well; if it's much more stable than 3.0, ought I to try installing it instead? I don't want to ultimately have to use Boot Camp.
