    Hi All,

    I recently installed parallels 5 on my mbp (running 10.6.2) to keep up with some windows software I have to use everyday for school. Everything is working fine except now my quick look doesn't completely work anymore. Images on the desktop still show, but when I hit the space bar to get the enlarged/expanded view everything comes up blank. Anyone else with this problem or heard of a solution?

    Problem resolved


    The problem was that I had to erase my HD to regain my previous windows partition. So naturally I restored from my time machine back up. Apparently a lot of people are having a problem with quick look when restoring from time machine. I re-installed the 10.6.2 combo update and now everything works just like normal. It wasn't Parallels at all, just the fudged restore from time machine. Hope this helps anyone looking.
