Dual Boot Glitch! - Rawr!!

Well, I have been dual-booting with Ubuntu and W7 recently, they were both in separate partitions... And when i started messing around with Ubuntu A LOT, it would glitch a lot, and i booted into my W7 and deleted the Partition which conatained my Ubuntu [U:] But now, on my boot screen - it still shows Ubuntu as a OS to boot into, and if i try to boot into it, it just shows the error screen that i should insert my Windows Installation Dick etc. etc... But i had deleted my Ubuntu... So how can i make it NOT show up on my boot screen anymore??

Just type "system configuration" into the lower left where it says, "search programs and files" then hit enter and go to the boot tab then just delate the entry for Ubuntu, select yes to restart.
