2 months ago I deleted parallels as I didn't need it anymore.

Today I installed lion and loads of windows programs are showing up in launchpad with the parallels logo (2 red lines next to them)

How do i get rid of them??

Even though parallels was deleted there is a good chance the alias folder to the Windows apps is still in your users application folder.


File path is usually...
/Users/YOURNAME/Applications/NAME_OF_OLD_VM

Delete these and you should be gold.
