    I installed VM paralells a while back, I thought I would use it but I found out I do not. When I did use it it was EXTREMELY Slow.

    I used the uninstall and have removed parallels but here is my question.

    Didn’t Parallells partition my HDD?
    If so how do I get that precious space back?

    Yes, Parallels creates a virtual machine which contains all the windows stuff. Deleting that will delete everything.

    Did you install the VMWare tools after you got everything else set up? Vista is excruciatingly slow without VMWare tools installed.
