At my computer startup it appears 3 different startup possibilities:

Microsoft XP Professional (Tuneup Backup) (boot screen)
Microsoft XP Professional
Microsoft XP Professional (Tuneup Backup)

How can I make that disapear?

Sorry my english...

I don't have the tuneup installed anymore.

Thanks

removed all but the first part of that code
(the stuff below needs to come out of the boot.ini)
multi(0)disk(0)rdisk(0)partition(1)WINDOWS="MICROSOFT WINDOWS PROFESSIONAL (Tuneup Backup) (bootscreen)" /noexecute=optin/fastdetect/TUTag=E8EHLO-BAk /KERNEL=Kernel1.exe
multi(0)disk(0)rdisk(0)partition(1)WINDOWS="MICROSOFT WINDOWS PROFESSIONAL (Tuneup Backup)"
/noexecute=optin/fastdetect/TUTag=E8EHLO-BAk

open my computer > click tools > folder options > view tab> tick show hidden files/folders > untick hide protected system files > press yes..then apply then ok

navigate to your c:\ drive...find the file that's named boot.ini and open it with notepad...then remove the two lines shown above...save the file ... then

while still in my computer > click tools > folder options > view tab> tick hide hidden files/folders > tick hide protected system files > press apply then ok

now reboot
