Removed operating systems and still there when booting

Hello i have installed previous versions of operating systems in the past such as vista and ubuntu, i have removed them as i did not use them.

My question is when i boot up my laptop there still showing up to choose to boot but they dont boot becuase there removed,

does anyone know how i can remove these from my laptop from the boot up section and just use windows 7 as my main priority boot without waiting 30 seconds or what ever it is for it to load automatically?

Any help would be much appriciated,

Regards Paul

try this
in the run window, or windows 7 search window, type " msconfig " (without quotes), the second tab, boot, in the bigger window you will see all booting versions, delete the one you don't want.
did it a long time ago, but i'm pretty sure it works.
the windows you are at the present moment logged into will not be deletable.
watch out not to delete accidently the wrong version, as they might look identicle.
