I have been successfully running a virtual pc (windows XP with all service packs) with Parallels Desktop 5 on an iMac for a few months now. Then this week problems have started which I cannot resolve and make me think that I may need to re-install Parallels, which I obviously do not want to do. First MS Excel 2007 froze a few times and now freezes when I try to print, now Word 2007 will not load, just sticks on the opening title window (I have tried all the MS recommended solutions without success, including uninstalling and reinstalling the whole Office suite), also Quickbooks freezes now when I try to print to my shared printer. I posted a question about the word problem on this forum a few days ago but no replies. I am getting increasingly depressed and desperate about this as I do not know where to go for help. Maybe someone here can help this time. I hope so.
