    Hi, this is my first ever forum post, so please excuse any faux pas.

    I am running Vista (SP1) under parallels desktop 3 (5600 build), Parallel tools installed, without Boot Camp, but have found that parts of the Vista desktop do not display correctly. I have no graphics (clock etc) on the right side of the screen.

    The pre-installed Vista games (solitaire, minesweeper) do not work at all. clicking on each game I either get a pattern of colour within the file window or an error message offering online search for resources.

    File windows take about 5-10 seconds to display after clicking on their icons.

    I have an IMac 2.33GHz Intel Core 2 Duo, with 3 GB DDR2 SDRAM, Nvidia Geforce 7600GT Graphics card. 100MB partition. Mac OS 10.5.3 (9D34)

    Vista grade my computer as 1, for graphics performance under Parallels.

    Is there a way improve the way Parallels handles simple graphics?

    I use Vista under Boot Camp for 3D games (Vista graphic rating 5.2 for same computer).

    Incidentally, I got the Premium Edition of Parallels (including Kaspersky Internet Security 6). I found that Kaspersky crashed each time I tried to scan for the first time.

    I bought a copy of Kaspersky I S 7, which works just fine.

    Thank you.
