    Did you try invoking LaunchPad, navigating to the page the folder is on and performing a "click and hold" on the folder to see if the "x" delete pops up on the folder?

    Well then...I suppose CleanMyMac didn't uninstall Parallels correctly. What a surprise! Who knows what other issues might arise?

    If you can move the offending Launchpad folder to the first page of your LaunchPad icons you might be able to use the demo version of Launchpad Manager to remove it.
