    See if EasyBCD will work.

    Thanks for the suggestion. I tried, but it only shows entries for Win 10 and 7. Same when I go to the Boot tab of msconfig.

    in command prompt (admin) run:

    bcdedit

    Are the mystery entries listed in the results? If they are then run:

    bcdedit /delete {guid}

    {guid} will be the actual guid of the entry you want to delete. You can cut and paste the guid's.

    Once again, thank you. That worked perfectly.
    Yep, they were listed. It's what I thought was the correct method, but just needed to hear it from someone who knows better than me. I noticed the entries when I ran bcdedit a few days back, but thought nothing of them because they weren't showing up on boot. Glad to finally have that resolved. Thanks again.
