I have definitely tracked it down to that part of the installation that is contained within the installation of Shared Applications
I cured it by booting into safe mode with networking (Press F8 at start-up) and navigating into /Program Files/Parallels/Parallels Tools and removing to the Recycle Bin, the whole contents of that folder. Next restarting normally, Win Xp comes up normally. Next Install Parallels Tools using a custom install. By a process of elimination I found that installing everything EXCEPT Shared Applications provided the fix.
Also during my investigation, I found that Parallels explorer does NOT allow you to rename or delete files. On my system it just quits.
In the absence of nil support from Parallels, I hope this will prove useful to others experiencing the same problem
