The Parallels Desktop application, better known as a hypervisor, aides computing by leveraging the hardware resources of a device to efficiently run more than one OS at the same time, from the same system.

The real issues that can grind Parallels to a halt and prevent it from working properly—and conversely keep your VMs from working as well—stems from the multiple preference files used by the app to store configuration and settings information for both the app itself and the VMs it hosts.
