Which operating system do you wish to keep?

Really you need to GET RID of the Avanquest software. It has added something to the hard drive that is giving you those option. Nothing you are doing with EasyBCD is going to change those options. It is not in Windows or any file Windows uses.

xBlueRabbit if you look the Boot Menu section there is only one OS listed, Win 7.

Not sure if uninstalling that KWRAP Avanquest software will even get rid of those options.
There also may be an option in that AQ software to disable that boot menu. If there is then disable the boot menu then Uninstall that software.

It did look strange, with only one operating system listed, and then a boot menu for Linux and other operating systems.

I do believe that the OP did remove the Avanquest software, so I was thinking the OP could do this:

Since, the operating systems are not being listed apart from the Windows 7 OS, and therefore each operating system can't be removed with the EasyBCD program.

Disk - Clean and Clean All with Diskpart Command, and then a Clean Reinstall - Factory OEM Windows 7

What does everyone else think? I wouldn't want to a do a reinstall, when there are other solutions for the OP to try.

EDIT: I noticed an option, on the same section from the EasyBCD program, whereby you disable the boot menu, maybe that would help.

You can try downloading CCleaner and run the registry cleaner. Links below mine and Blue Robot's sigs.

Correction: Set it to 00 seconds.

If that doesn't help then boot into System Recovery Options to run Startup Repair - Run 3 Separate Times to see if it will correct the Boot Manager.

Download and install Visual BCD Editor - it shows complete BCD contents.
All present loaders in BCD are listed in left pane.
To delete any loader - right click on loader and select "Delete".

Complete contents but not structured you can get on admin command prompt:
bcdedit /enum all /v
