You've got Shared networking enabled in Parallels. This will create network configurations (the things you're seeing) on the Mac side. Shared networking basically just shares your Macs network settings with Parallels. You should not be concerned and it will not slow your system down.Recently, I've been running parallels occasionally for some windows software. However, whenever I open the network panel in system preferences, i now see 3 things:
-My airport connection to my wireless hub (this is normal)
I can't figure out what the last two are except that they are obviously related to parallels in some way. The thing is these things are ALWAYS running, even after rebooting. Should I be concerned? Couldn't they slow my system down? Why are they always running if I only use parallels once in a blue moon?
I've tried looking in the Parallels owners manual and have found no mention of this.
