Hi, all

When restarting my PC I get a choice of 2 systems to load..

WINDOWS PROFESSIONAL
WINDOWS PROFESSIONAL SET UP

Now this would not be a problem if the top one was the default, but its not. If I do not monitor the restart it automatically enters the setup option.
The setup then runs (blue screen) until I get the option to Quit (F3).

Can anyone point me in the right direction to remove the setup option from the boot?

Thanks in advance.
