    I downloaded a trial version of parallels 8 and everything went well except for while trying to get updates for Windows XP Pro, I get this message:

    "Your computer's date and time appear to be out of sync with an update certificate"

    Tried the 'fix' with no success. Changed time zone and that didn't work. Can't ask Parallels support because I didn't buy the product yet. Under the 17 day trial. Not good.

    I gave up.


    I tried everything to get the date and time fiasco to work with zero success. Even went to the Microsoft neutral zone to search for anything that *might* work. I eventually remembered why I switched to MAC, grabbed a glass of wine and chucked the whole foolish idea.

    Thanks for reading...
