Hi, I recently updated to version 5 and have found after 3 support tickets and several hours of trying to fix I still have the same problem... When I go to start Parallels 5 and select My Virtual Machine with XP then Parallels 5 Freezes at the point of a black window BUT I can hear XP start Up chimes in the background.. I then have to Force Quit the application as it does not respond... I have tried everything support has said to fix but nothing changes..... I can get into my Virtual machine sometimes by launching a Windows Application from the Windows Folder on my Dock (Does not work all the time) I am Force Quiting all the time it has also blown my Time Machine settings and Time Machine was backing up my complete system 14.3 GB every hour till I realized and stopped it. Anyone have a answer as its been 5 days and I wish I had not upgraded as 4 was slower but it worked Please Help ????
