Zombie applications

    Hi, I've been using Parallels 10 for a week or two now - converted from Fusion, which was getting very frustrating.

    Overall, much happier with Parallels. However, I frequently get "Zombie" Windows apps showing on the Mac in Coherence. They do not appear when in windows desktop mode (i cant even see the process in task manager), and cannot be shut down without restarting the guest OS. In Coherence they show in the dock, and when you switch to the app you just see a basic menu which does not function (except, bizarrely, for the About command - screenshot attached).

    Any ideas what may be causing this?
    Yosemite 10.10.3, Parallels , Windows 7 SP1.

    Many thanks

    Hi Pietro117, please perform Windows clean boot and check if the issue still persisting,
    Note: Please do not remove Parallels Tools services from the start up or from services when performing Windows clean boot.
