try ´start > settings > control panel > system > advanced > start and restore´ and uncheck the checkbox ´show list of operating systems´ (or similar - don´t know the correct words in the english version).<BR>or edit the ´c:\\boot.ini´.

Which, by the way, can be done by selecting <B>edit</B> and removing the line referring to the Professional. <BR>But one thing I'm sure of: someone started installing Windows XP Professional on your system. Of some is puuling your leg by adding an extra line to your boot.ini. Things like that just don't happen all by itself.
