My dad was "helping" me by updating my computer without consulting me. I didn't see what he did but I think he only installed some updates as far as I know...
Anyway since then every time I turn on my computer it loads Windows Boot Manager first instead of loading straight to Windows 7. I only have Windows 7 installed on this computer so there's no point in it asking me what operating system to load. I tried the 2 main methods described on these forums and they have not fixed the problem. Now the boot manager stays there until I select an option. Before this my computer used to boot in 30 seconds! Now it has to load the boot manager which takes an additional 30 seconds itself.
I did go into system properties>adv settings>advanced>startup and recovery>unchecked time to display list of operating systems.
I also tried msconfig>boot
I'd appreciate help in fixing this annoyance.
