I have narrowed the problem down somewhat. It occurs when security is at medium high or medium, not when at high. I am in work and our network goes through a proxy server. I did not have problems like this before. I am running shared networking. As I have stated repeatedly in the forums, you guys do NOT have networking working smoothly for mobile professionals switching from one location to another, often behind firewalls and proxy servers. Get this stuff working already. It has been the bane of Parallels since 1.0!!!!!
