    Parallels keeps opening my Excel files with Windows, even though I have Office 2004 for Mac. Ive changed the file assocation by right-clicking the file and choosing File Info, Open with, Change All. Ive done this a number of times, and Parallels keeps changing it.

    Any ideas how I can stop this?

    There is an obscure setting in Parallels to turn off this "feature", I'm sorry I don't recall it and I've removed the software. This was one of a few Parallels "features" that drove me to VMWare Fusion.

    But you should be able to find it if you check all Parallels preferences.
