Exclamation 2 Os intsalled how do i remove 2nd?

i am currently running xp home and yesterday installed the new darklite upgrade, i did not format the drive as i have loads of important stuff. DL installed fine but i could not detect my internet connection so i restarted and saw the option to chose which operating to load up, so i chose xp home and everything worked fine but noticed in C drive i have my normal windows folder and another called windows.0, what is the best way to remove this darklite version so i can run my pc as normal without have to chose xp home every time?

Go into safe mode and delete the windows.old folder. Then after that go Start>run>msconfig>boot.ini tab. check all boot paths.
