Yeah, unfortunately I can't boot from parallels because the demo expired. Edit: So with invisible files visible, I did a search in Windows and deleted everything I found that had "parallels" in it. I also did a search in RegSeeker for "parallels" and found over 550 entires. I just deleted them... gonna reboot and see how it goes. Edit 2: Well, it didn't get it all. Missed a lot, unfortunately. Some stuff still is listed with "Prl" but other things on my system have that too, so no batch removing. At least windows is MUCH snappier now.
