    In Windows, right click on my computer -> Properties
    Click on the Advanced Tab
    Under Performance area click on Settings
    Under Visual Effects, select Custom and be sure to uncheck "Smooth edges of screen fonts"

    Also edit your virtual machine in Parallels and make sure to select Allow Custom resolutions under display I think.
