Microsoft Whistler Personal in boot options on clean XP install


I have just repartitioned & formatted the drive on a HP Pavilion 750n
I have installed a new full version of XP Pro
When I reboot the computer I am given two boot options:

Windows XP Pro and
Microsoft Windows Whistler Personal

I have done a lot of computers and have never seen this.
What is Whistler and how did it get there and how do I get rid of it.
