I expect this is a long shot but I don't get much help from Parallels. I've been running this build in Boot Camp since last June. Suddenly the XP task bar and desktop icons disappeared and I can't use XP at all. Parallels customer service says to reinstall XP. First, I wonder if there is another alternative worth a try and second I don't really remember how to do that if that's what it comes to. Thanks anyone.
