    Several things have broken on my dual OS mac book pro since I updated parallels 10 to build 29227. The "Use Windows 7 Look" feature under the view menu no longer works. The checkbox is there, but doesn't do anything. Windows 8.1 boots to the standard windows 8.1 look in any case. Also, a strange "flicker" has developed when I'm in windows 8.1. If you think of a horizontal line about 3/4 of an inch from the top of the screen, any time the mouse crosses this line, the screen flickers for a fraction of a second. Currently, a black and white apple logo with a status bar that seems to be half way to completion appears and immediately disappears, causing the flicker.
    I'm running the following:
    OS X Yosemite 10.10.5
    MacBook Pro(retina, 15 inch, mid 2014)
    2.2 ghz, core i7
    graphics intel iris pro 1536 mb

    any ideas would be appreciated.
