I have a computer running Windows XP. When I turn it on it comes up to a screen that has 2 options:
Microsoft Windows XP Professional
Microsoft Windows

The Microsoft Windows XP Professional option is highlighted. If hit return or I wait awhile it boots to the Windows XP. If I select the Microsoft Windows option it boots to a command line. Is there anyway to remove the Microsoft Windows option short of re-installing?
