You've got XP and Windows 7 on the same partition? Did W7 ever work like this? Personally I'd delete Windows 7 and install it again on a new partition as it will save you a lot of hassle!

Well, you could delete the system files of it. You might even try Add or Remove programs, hehe, but I doubt it'll work. Sorry there.
