    So when my brother installed Parallels ...
    Hi, I'm new here. I've had this question stuck in the back of my head since 2008 when I first got my MacBook. I apologize in advance if it's a dumb question.

    So when my mom bought me my MacBook, my brother thought it would be a good idea to install Parallels so I can run Windows if I needed while college. (It was a good idea.) When he installed it, this icon, along with the two partitioned hard drives, appear on my Mac desktop. It's "32bit-UNmanaged.exe". It's something related to Parallels, something like a dependency walker thing. I never really bothered to look it up until now. I was wondering if I could delete it since it's just sitting there never being double clicked on.

    My question is:
    Can I trash "32bit-UNmanaged.exe" without having harmful repercussions?

    Is Parallels still installed on your MacBook? And, are you still using it to run Windows?

    You can probably delete the file since it's a Windows executable. Keep it in the Trash for awhile to make sure that Parallels still runs OK after you delete it. I have no idea what that file is used for. It may be something left over from the installation.
