I use Parallels [Version 15.1.4 (47270)] with a Macbook Pro(late 2016) with 4 USB C ports and Mojave 10.14.6
Sometimes I have problems with Windows locking up and I am forced to use Activity Monitor on the Mac to get Windows and Parallels to quit.
In Activity Monitor select Windows 10 and then select the X at the top left of the Activity Monitor window. Then select Force Quit in the dialog box that pops up.
Do the same for the following Parallels processes:
prl_naptd (there are two of these processes
When I force Parallels to quit this way sometimes upon restart of Parallels and subsequently Windows 10, Windows 10 starts a disk check which can take many minutes(>10 sometimes). To stop this disk check, I followed the directions below that I found on the internet. This stops Windows 10 from doing a disk check after what it calls and improper shutdown.
Instructions to prevent Windows 10 disk check at startup:
Press your Windows logo Key + R to launch your Run app and then type regedit and press Return.
Go to this exact location and double click on BootExecute (you can copy and paste this directory at the top and then press Enter to go to it):
Now delete all the lines in Value data and paste this then press Ok:
autocheck autochk * <---Erase this line.
Another solution not using the Registry
There is a solution on many websites advising you to run this command in your CMD to exclude a certain drive from disk check at startup (it’s the C drive in this example):
chkntfs /x C:
