Unknown daily scheduled program action

I am running w7 64bit.

In my temp folder is a file called parallels.log.

When I clear the temp folder this file returns the next day at exactly 11:54am which suggests that a program is scheduled to carry out some action at 11:54am daily.

I have checked the task scheduler and nothing is shown for that time.

Google checks of parallels all seem to refer to an Apple Mac program.

This isn't causing a problem but I would love to know what program is scheduled to run at 11:54am every day to cause this file to be produced.

I forgot to add that the action on this log file is:- Failed to open device ('\.\prl_hypervisor'

Something to do with a virtual drive/ desktop? Search Computer with parallels.log see what it comes up with. As you say, seems to be more of a Mac thing.

Seems to be not just for Mac's. click here "Parallels Hypervisor gives you the flexibility to create virtual machines for customers who prefer to deploy and maintain a variety of operating systems" and under the 'Requirements' menu "Parallels Hypervisor allows you to create virtual machines (VMs) running the following: Windows:" (it lists a variety of Linux and Windows O/Ss)

Maybe it's some sort of leftover from you running a VM?

Thanks for your observations - so far.

Never had anything to do with virtual machines.

The only thing I recollect installing recently is the latest version of Acronis and I can't remember whether or not that temp file was being created prior to that. I have checked out Acronis and nothing is scheduled at all.

Below is an extract from the log, which is actually at 11:56 not 11:54.

Just one of those 'unknowns' I guess.
