    I think the title here is putting it nicely. It used to take med 30 - 40 seconds to start parallels, login to windows, open Visual Studio, open a project and start working. Now? Well, it takes me a full minute to even login to windows. After starting Visual Studio it takes 30 SECONDS before the startup logo even appears and another 3 - 4 minutes before I have a project up and running. I've tried reinstalling Toolbox but it did nothing. Also tried restarting Parallels as well as my MacBook Pro, still nothing. I use Parallels on a daily basis for studies and this has rendered it useless for me. I don't know if you've done some weird update but whatever it is please fix it. This is NOT what I paid for. It worked just fine when I gave you my money.....

    I solved the issue. I'm gonna say how so that someone with a similar issue might be able to fix it as well. I have a MacBook Pro 2020 and apparently sometimes they can start running really slow when the adapter is not plugged in. This has not been an issue before and only parallels was running slow so I thought that was the issue. If Parallels is slow on you MacBook Pro, try this:

    1. Make sure your adapter is NOT plugged into your computer and shut it down, but don't close it.
    2. After shutting down your MacBook wait approximately 60 seconds before plugging in the adapter.
    3. This should automatically start you MacBook and it is now fixed.

    This for some reason made it go back to normal, after this it took me under a minute to launch parallels, start windows, login, open VS and open a project while having the MacBook run on battery power. Hope it helps.

    I have the same thing happening to me, but on my MacPro 5,1 2012 with Mojave 10.14.6. All of a sudden Windows takes a long to time to startup and shutdown. Every time I shut it down it says Windows 10 Stopping? It used to be much faster. Anyway still great program
