    my computer got infected with a virus a little while back and i was only able to salvage my windows xp(used to dualboot with vista)
    now i couldnt get rid of the virus on vista since it wouldnt boot(it disables task manager and apparently vista wont run without it) so i just formatted the drive that had vista

    now at boot it still gives the option of loading vista(but its not there) and i was wondering if i could get rid of that

    Yes, you can

    Is it the Vista or XP boot loader?

    Should do as it is modifying the Boot & Bootsect in XP.
