    I guessing since it has partitioned my hard drive I can't just drag the folder to the trash. How do I get that part of my drive back and take both off my computer entirely?

    :dunno: I thought it did something like that :o

    SO.....Will just dragging the parallels folder to the trash delete windows from my computer at the same time?

    then just trash the parallels program files to uninstall parallels and you're done.

    Not true.

    Run the parallels uninstaller. Both Fusion and Parallels install kernel extensions and drivers that will continue running even without the app in the Applications folder.
