Windows 7: Super annoying Linux boot option

Windows 7 Home 64 Bit
Super annoying Linux boot option

When booting my computer I am asked if I want to boot 7 or linux.
This is a problem for two reasons; first both OSs are on the same partition (HardDisk 0). Second I want to simply boot 7 by default and not be asked to choose on startup.

I created this problem when I was playing around with making a Linux "live" usb flash drive. I think unetbootin (the software for making the flashdrive into a bootable linux os) perhaps screwed up and put a couple of Linux boot files on my 7 partition. So now when my laptop goes looking for boot files it finds both 7, and Linux boot instructions on partition one.

Can anyone tell me how to fix this? I tried looking for the Linux boot files but I dont know what they look like. The less invasive/time intensive the advice is the better!

1st post, nice to meet ya'll
Thanks alot!
