I'm running PD7 (7.0.14922, build 693916) on a MBP-15, i7, 8GB. Guest OS is Win7. Something odd started happening this morning (possibly correlated with a Windows Defender update, but not sure). Parallels is keeping several CPU cores busy (130% on the Mac system monitor) and the Win7 Task Manager shows a solid 25% CPU utilization with no apps running (time is used by explorer.exe, crsss.exe and prl_cc.exe). If I start MSWord, the cursor keeps changing between arrow and the blue circle "processing" shape, and spoolsv.exe, PrintIsolationHost.exe and splwow64.exe start using time. I can type in the document, but it's slow and laggy. Has there been some sort of change, or is this a known problem that I just haven't found in the archives? Thanks!
