Windows 7: How to restore Windows 7 Recovery Environment

How to restore Windows 7 Recovery Environment

Hi everyone,

Today when I switched on my computer, mysteriously, a Windows 8-esque recovery menu popped up, those with huge buttons and Metro-fied, although my computer is running Windows 7. I decided to try it again, pressing F8 during startup and choosing 'Repair your computer' to trigger the recovery options. The Windows 8 recovery menu appeared again.

I installed the preview versions of Windows 8 previously but has since removed them. Is there any way to remove these last bits of Windows 8 and restore the old Windows 7 Recovery Environment (with all the System Restore and stuff)?
