    Have a look at System Preferences --> Time Machine --> Options. There's the Time Machine exclude list. i.e. everything in this list won't be backed up.

    Make sure your Applications folder isn't on that list (for the Parallels application itself). The same thing must be true for the folder containing your Parallels virtual machine file(s). (or its parent folder...)
