Install EasyBCD 2.0 to have a look at the listings and remove any old ones from the list.

Removing the timeout for the stray listing doesn't remove the listing just it's appearance. If this is sufficient and performance is otherwise good, you can wait to wipe and reinstall but be aware you may have some GRUB corruption on the HD.

Be sure to backup or save any personal data to somewhere other than your C partition before you wipe and install.

The wipe will delete everything from your C partition.
