    I've been humming along with the above version of parallels with every version of Mojave prior to the new release of 10.14.4. Now my Windows10 setup is effectively crippled. Long bootup, apps crawling, CPU flatlined at 100% much of the time. I'm running Windows 10 Pro 10.0.17134 on a Macbook Pro with 16 gb memory / 3.1 ghz i7 (15 inch 2017).

    Hello.
    Same problem here. PD Business 14.1.2 (45479), Windows 10 1709, Macbook Pro 2,9 GHz Intel Core i9, 32 Gb DDR4, Radeon Pro 560X 4 GB + Intel UHD Graphics 630 1536 MB.
    Everything was going well until this morning, when I confirmed the installation of macOS Mojave 10.14.4.
    After rebooting the Mac, my VM runs slowly: this applies to both the processes and the display.
    Alle the animations of the windows are extremely slow (even when minimizing a window and then restoring it).

    UPDATED
    Reinstalling Parallels Tools solved my issue (as often happen). The VM is now working fine.
    I must confirm that the problem still exists. The VM is very very slow.

    There are a couple of steps folks have taken to work around the problem so far:
    1. Restore to 10.14.3 if you have a Time Machine backup (best solution)
    2. Switch the hypervisor to Apple and turn off Adaptive Hypervisor (helps, maybe, but not back to 100%)

    My iMac Pro was backed up, so I was able to restore. My MacBook Pro uses solution 2 with ok results.

    Yep, I have the same problem. My machine at home was fine and my iMac at work starting acting totally unusable for Windows 10 in a VM. Then I came home today and noticed my Mac Book at home just updated to 10.14.4 also, and now it's VM is completely unusable.

    Going to try Vmware for the time being as I am running it against a boot camp partition so I can easily switch between the two. Usually Parallels has way better performance for me than VMware, but this is making it impossible to do any work.

    Me too! I am running Parallels Version 14.1.3 (45485) with the new release of Mojave 10.14.4. My Windows 10 is running really slow. I am not able to work on the computer!

    Changing to Apple Hypervisor fixed it for me. Last time I tried the apple one it was slower, but this is at least getting me back to work ...

    I'm having the same problem with 10.14.4. My Parallels is unusable at this performance level. Why is there not a fix for this if so many people are having problems?

    I think 10.4.4 literally just started rolling out automatically to peoples Mac's a few days ago. However as mentioned above, change to the Apple Hypervisor and it works much much better.

    I've been having this problem for a while. I shouldn't have limited it to 10.14.4. I will take a look at Apple Hypervisor. Thanks!

    I'm having the same issue with 10.14.4. I found that it would simply freeze for 30-60 seconds and screen updates and mouse events would simply stop responding. Eventually it would all come back and be usable again until the next freeze came about. It was barely tolerable between the freezes. I changed the hypervisor from Parallels to Apple and that seems to have alleviated the freezing, however the performance is still far far less than what it was before. I often joked that Parallels runs Windows faster than Windows does...however that's not the case now. I am using a remote desktop to a standalone Windows box now because using Parallels is no longer viable.

    Same problem. I am in contact with the support. After spending 2,5 hours with them only troubleshooting at the Win10 virtual machine I will try on the same hardware configuration but with 10.14.3.

    Hi Parallels Team, this issue is getting very serious. When do you plan to solve it?
    When it is an Apple MacOS issue - is it escalated to APPLE already.
    ? Ist ssems to, they do not really know about it ;)
    about it.

    Hope dies at least..

    Funny, after three days after testing and optimizing with the support of my Win10 VM it is still not working. I copied the VM to my other MAC with 10.14.3 it is running perfect(same Mac Pro). Then Parallels escalated it to the second level with the meaning the WindowsServer takes more than 12%, but this was only at the moment when I did the report... I gave up wasting my time with it to use a product with an issue >10.14.4. Now I run my VM on linux with xen. The support is not worth taking hours of looking... There is no deep troubleshooting... Hope the issue will be solved in some time.
