    Is it possible to remove the Parallels logo from the Dock items etc?

    While running? No.
    When it is not running? Yes. Just drag it off.

    No I think he meant getting rid of the small Parallel symbol in the lower right hand corner of a Windows Application icon.

    As I've not really got Parallels to work properly yet, I can't promise anything but...

    BACK UP ALL!
    Find the Parallels Desktop application and rt/ctrl-click
    Select "Show Package Contents"
    Browse through the contents>resources folder and there are loads of images.
    One is labelled "Parallels-Overlay.icns"
    I am assuming that if you change this you will change the overlay.

    There are other icons that you could try altering too

    THIS IS AT YOUR OWN RISK ... i can't even get a trackpad recognised in a "transported" image!

    Yes, that'll do it. I'd imagine that if you remove the icon or replace it with a blank one, you will no longer get the overlay. It is also possiable to change the look of a specific applications by goining into your windows application folder on the mac side.
