Hope someone here can help.
Trados Workbench and TagEditor only appear in the task manager as processes but no windows of both applications are shown on the screen and they also do not appear in the task bar.

I work on a MacBook Pro (early 2008) and Windows 7 Home Premium installed via Parallels. Everything (Trados Freelance Suite 2007 and Studio 2011) worked fine until I upgraded Mac OS Snow Leopard to Lion (also installed the latest version of Parallels tools).
Though I can still use Studio 2011 and translate as well as save TagEditor-ttx files, I cannot work in TagEditor or Workbench.

Another weird thing I noticed after that upgrade to Lion: before the upgrade I could use the keyboard combination "Shift" + "Ctrl" + "Arrow right/left" to highlight whole words in a document in Word or another word processing application under Windows. When I use that key combination now nothing happens, i. e. the cursor remains at the position I placed it and no words get highlighted.
This glitch may have nothing to do at all with my Trados issue but it appeared at the same time which is a bit strange.

All other applications (including MS Office 2003 / 2007) installed under Windows 7 run without any issues.

If anybody has an idea how to solve this mystery this would be really appreciated.

Thanks in advance!
