I've been running parallels for about three months with no problems. Today, upon booting up OS X (before opening parallels) I got this message:

enter image description here

When I click "ignore" the message reappears in ~10 seconds. The same thing happens when I click "reopen".

I have tried opening parallels, but that doesn't solve it. However, when I open paralells, I do keep getting this message:

enter image description here

Can anyone tell me how to solve this?

In case it's helpful, I'm pasting below the details that are shown when I click "report" in the error message:

I have a possible solution. Please try the following instructions:

Start /Application/Utilities/Terminal and execute these four commands:

mkdir -p tmp

cp "/Library/Parallels/Parallels NAPT" ~/tmp/prl_naptd_orig

ditto --arch i386 "/Library/Parallels/Parallels NAPT" ~/tmp

sudo cp ~/tmp/prl_naptd "/Library/Parallels/Parallels NAPT"

Enter the password after the last command (please note you will not see it on typing)

Send a problem report if this doesn't help as Den has suggested.
