What does Windows explorer say? One is called C:/Windows and the other is named C:/Windows.old? Just delete the file .old

I would guess I am not understanding your question. Are you asked which one you want to log into on start up? My thought was you had reinstalled 7 in which case the old one would have been put into a file called windows.old.

The windows.old can just be deleted. Right click on the file and select delete from the menu and you will be good to go.

If you want to edit the boot loader, the best and easiest way is to download EasyBCD Its a boot manager and with it you can remove the second Windows 7 on boot up. Just make sure to remove the right one!

I believe you can modify in Msconfig under the boot tab as well
