Below you find the mail I send to Parallel on the 23 of Septembre.

unlike stated in the text, rogue autostart also happens when
installing the application. No priviledge escalation so far so the
issue is no biggie. Still I would have liked a reaction form the

Anyways, Parallel did not care to reply and did not fix the "bug". I

Dear Parallels Team,

I came across a small sec. issue during uninstallation of your
program. (See that screenshots attached)

The program PRLDHCP is shelled without the usage of QUOTES in the
path, leading to the execution of c:\program.exe (without elevation of
priviledges) That said it is only an issue as an auto start vector.

This might be a Macrovision issue but I don't think so.
