However if I right click and choose Log Out then the correct screen does appear after the Log Out has taken place. I can then Log In!
I also noted that after I'd run the LiveCD version of OpenSUSE (which I assumed would not alter any settings as it's all run from CD) my installed version on my ext USB HDD has changed to match what I tried on the LiveCD.
I suspect the best thing to do is to delete the OpenSUSE and Grub, return to my original Windows 7 set up, and then start again. But how do I remove Grub? I assume I can then simply delete the Linux partitions and resize from W7. After that I'd try the USB stick method which seems most suitable for my setup.
If you have not change the suggestion done by opensuse than GRUB was installed at the MBR of HD0
To overwrite the GRUB in MBR you need the rescue mode of the windows
cd or dvd. I do not use windows but I think the procedure is start op
from you're windows cd or dvd goto to the rescue mode give the command fixmbr and fixboot .
But there are a lot of threads about this issue so search for it
NO you can not just delete the opensuse partition because than Nothing will boot
