Can no longer boot into Win 7 via Parallels on Mac OSX 10.7.3

Now I can only boot into Windows if I use safe mode with or without networking.  I was thinking to limit the number of things that launch at start but there's a lot in there.  Any recommendation on how to approach the startup problems?

If Mac OSX 10.8.3 is right you should ask Parallels if you can join their beta team. I am sure they are working on a Mountain Lion version.

why pay for parallels when you can get a really good emulator free of charge >> https://www.virtualbox.org/  and you should be able to transfer your windows 7 VM to VBox

When you boot to safe mode, you may want to run msconfig and disable basically all of the startup items, then reboot and see if it goes to normal mode. This is definitely a windows issue not a parallels problem.

Yes - this is what worked msconfig.  I had to add services and programs to start gradually and eventually got a combination that loads.  Took a lot of time but finally got it.
