I hope some one can help. I am a PC tech that has been assigned to 'fix' a MAC. The user is running Parallels and clicked yes to a bunch of popup screens. Now all of her fonts are managed by Parallels and not the MAC OS. Is there any help for this other than reimaging the MAC with a fresh OS install?

Because I really have no idea what the user did in Parallels it's difficult to try to answer this. However, since Parallels runs Windows in a virtual machine, there is no reason to mess with the operating system on the Mac.

If necessary, remove the current Parallels virtual machine of Windows and create a new one. I don't remember off hand if Parallels makes a backup of the VM or snapshot, but if it does, you can always revert back to when the VM was OK.
