    I decided to try Parallels (free trial) earlier today just to see how it would be. Hated it, deleted it from the Applications folder 10 minutes after using it.

    Now every time I go into my Windows 8 Bootcamp, the keyboard won't work with the Apple features (volume, screen brightness, even the keyboard won't light up).

    What do I do? I want to delete all folders that have the word "Parallels" in it but it keeps saying "shared with Mac/Windows" and it has files in them..Please help.

    Did you follow the proper uninstall guidelines for Parallels?

    Nope. I just moved it from the Applications tab in finder to trash

    Thank You so much for the link. The only thing I did was move the icon to trash. I no longer have the icon on my Mac, but I still have folders like "Applications (Parallels)" in my finder.

    Just found out that the problem is my network having a "metered connection" How do I change it if I can't right click?

    Sounds like a Bootcamp drivers issue. Do you have the option to fix/reinstall the drivers?

    Try contacting Apple Bootcamp support.

    http://www.apple.com/support/bootcamp/contact/

    I found various Apple bootcamp PDFs that explained how to repair Bootcamp drivers, but they assumed you're using OS X install discs.
