I finally bit the bullet and installed Parallels and Windows 7. Documentation of rParallels is poor at best....especially when they said to check page 63 in the Users Guide...there is only about 6 pages. Any way..it's up and running and I have installed both Quicken and Quickbooks and they seem to be working fine. The problem is all of the leftover desktop clutter. I'm afraid to just thrash it in case it is needed. I have an item called GRMCHPFRER_EN_DVD, a folder that is labeled Windows that contains DLM-w7hp86iso, and X17-24208.iso. There is also an icon that looks like a monitor, is red and has ll Parallels on it. The tag says Windows 7. Does anyone know if these can all get trashed, or should they be moved to the Application folder. Sorry if I sound a little paranoid, but I spent too much time getting this to work to destroy it.

PS...any way to get my 10 key working with Parallels and Windows?

I inadvertently put this in the wrong forum..hopefully that explains why, after 168 views there were no replies. Any help here??
