Where has my Parallels 'alias' gone?

    I installed Windows 7 in Parallels five and for a couple of days it worked fine. But when I tried to launch it yesterday it said the alias had disappeared and gave me the option to fix it. Clicking this simply brings up a list of files on my computer, but I don't have a clue which one I need! I am in trouble and would be very, very grateful for some kind person to come to my rescue!

    What do you try to launch, Parallels or Windows 7?
    And what Alias are you referring to? The one to Parallels? If so, have a look at your Applications (CMD+SHIFT+A while in Finder) folder.

    Yes, it's a parallels not Windows problem

    It's when I try to launch Parallels that the error message occurs. I can find Parallels in my applications folder, but there are several 'parts' of it and none of them are clearly the one I need, so I don't know what I'm looking for!
