    I am failry new to Mac so please be patient with me.

    I installed Parallels and Windows XP but decided I didn't need to run XP after all. I uninstalled Parallels with their uninstaller, but noticed my hard drive space didn't increase very much. I did a spotlight search for windows and found several folders but they only totals around 1-2 G. I thought Windows would take up more space.

    Is there a way to make sure Windows has been removed from this computer? I noticed it has been running slower since I installed Parallels and Windows. BTW, I am running a Mini 1.66 with 2 G Ram.

    I have run tech tool to make sure everything is working but the speed is still an issue.

    Any and all help would be appreciated.

    goto your documents folder, and delete the parallels folder

    still having problems

    I deleted the folder in the documents but have not seen any difference in the speed. Are there other folders to look for?

    thanks
