Linux Mint is funded by ads and donations.

Did you uninstall or just delete the file?
The uninstall should take care of this
It is a problem in Windows 7 and I can't help you with that as the files have changed since XP and I don't know how it's done any more
Don't fix it if it ain't broken, don't break it if you can't fix it

If this is a Windows 7 boot menu, that is controlled by your BCD store. You need to remove the entry for mint using bcdedit.exe or a 3rd party tool like Neosmart EasyBCD. For more support, try the NeoSmart web site and forum, or the Microsoft support files about the BCD store. Good luck.
