    I want to remove one of 3 virtual machines in Parallels 4. But it is always greyed out - even when there is no virtual machine running. What can I do? Thanks, John

    Hello John,

    Please go to Finder -> Home Folder -> Documents -> Parallels and trash the .pvm file which you want to remove.
    Your Parallels folder will have all the three virtual machines. So you can easily trash the one which you dont require.

    Solved

    Thanks for your answer. I knew I could do that but the manual says that using the remove menu item will also remove all other files associated with the VM. (For this very reason software is being sold for money that removes Mac programs, completely!)
    The problem and solution lay in this that I had Parallels set to auto load my Windows VM. When I disabled this option, remove became available again.
    I understand that remove would be greyed out for the VM that is loading but it would seem logical to me that theother VMs could be removed. No? John
