Macrium Reflect boots PE at start up. How to stop this?

I hav Macrium reflect image backup. It generally works fine. I selected the PE option and this is offerred at start up when the computer boots. Annoyingly the computer boots straight into windows PE rather than to my win7/ drive C.

These are my settings. Add recovery boot menu option/win PE 3.1
I tried 'No menu' and it made no difference.
Any ideas how to turn this start up boot to PE off?

If you can boot Windows,
Run msconfig
Post a screen print of the Boot tab

Windows 7 is the Default OS, so it should auto boot to Windows 7.
I don't know why it would auto boot to Macrium with your settings.

You could select Macrium, click on Set as Default, then click Apply.
Then select Windows 7, click on Set as Default, then click Apply.

That would toggle on/off Macrium as the Default OS, and might reset something that isn't working correctly right now.
I don't know if this would help, but it's easy to try it.

In Macrium Version 5 paid for version there is an option in the Macrium menu for this.

Open Macrium & on the menu bar at the top is an item called Other Tasks, click on that & a drop down menu should have an item about the Boot Recovery Option.

I think it was just needing to reboot the computer so that the deletion of the Macrium reflect system recovery could work.
