I've gotten over $200 in cash back from them at places I would have shopped anyway! Ebay, Staples, more! I put it at the top because they ROCK. Basically, you get a kickback from Ebates when buy.com or whoever pays them. Win-win. If you like throwing money away, don't use them!

Parallels 3.0 build 5626 has a sloooow update of Windows Desktop Tools

If you installed the update of Nov 5 2008, with the above build number and version on OS X 10.4.11 using Windows XP SP 3 and all updates as your virtual machine, it will take a while. (Whew! That was a lot of keywords for you Googlers.)

Go to lunch and let it complete. I put it on a Core 2 Duo 1.83 Ghz with 2 gigs of RAM and it still takes way long than you thik it should. I just let it sit for a few hours and spin. It eventually completed and now everything looks good!

Good luck. It's Windows and you'll need it.
