Windows 7: Fixing Dual Boot Issue after System Restore

Fixing Dual Boot Issue after System Restore

Ok, I am new to the forums here.. I had to do a system repair and a restore point due to getting the Vundo Virus. I had the black screen of death with the mouse cursor. Well I have the system up and running again. But here is the annoying thing. When the system boots up it goes to a black screen asking for what version of Windows 7 I want to load. Has Windows 7 and Windows 7 Ultimate (Recovered). The first Windows 7 choice is the only one that works and the Recovered one does not do anything. Just makes the system reboot. How do I go about removing the Recovered selection so that Windows 7 automatically loads??? I had my friend who has a BS Degree in IT from Michigan State look at it and he can not figure it out either. Any help would be greatly appreciated.. I did see several posts about having a partition and removing that and what not posted here for the dual boot systems. Problem is that I do not have a dual boot system. Only one partition.

If you have a virus, you have to kill it besides that you are recovering your configuration.
If you have done it, it's ok.
If you just want to remove that annoying selection from the startup, here is a tut:

Thanks SpeedGamer.. That worked just great.. I quarantined the Virus on another computer by installing the drive there and then reinstalled it back into my rig. That is where I got the stupid dual boot screen. Thanks for the link to the tutorial. It worked to perfection.
