I uninstall parallels, but now I have got 5 error messages: Google Chrome requires Parallels Desktop to operate. PLease install Parallels Desktop and try again.

I think this errors appear from UserNotificationCenter - i switch off it but errors didn't disappeared, also I can't find any file association with Google Chrome.

Any suggestions?

It sounds like you were using Parallels to run a version of Windows within the OSX environment. Within that emulator, you installed the Windows version of Google Chrome browser. Now that you have removed Parallels, that version of Chrome has lost its "OS" and is throwing the error.

In Safari, go to Google's Chrome page to download and install the OSX version of Chrome on your Mac.
