help me get rid of OS choice on boot.

I deleted my XP partition. but everytime I start my pc, there goes the OS choice, Earlier version of windows (XP) and Windows 7. I want to use only Win7, can I get rid of that OS choice screen?

I've deleted any other OS in 'System Configuration'>'Boot' tab, and set 'C:Windows 7' as default OS. But that screen keeps coming up. Any suggestion?
