Click the Start button and type msconfig in the Search box.

Click msconfig under Programs to open the System Configuration dialog box.

Click the Boot tab and highlight the Windows Setup entry.

Click Delete followed by Apply then OK.

Make sure you don't delete the Windows 7 (C:\Windows) : Current OS; Default OS boot entry as you would then be unable to boot into Windows.
