    Yep, every time you restart.
    I guess if you don't want it any more, you just disable it in the startups.
    To get rid of it:

    Click image for larger version

    Then:

    Click image for larger version

    It will be gone.

    Why don't you assign it hotkey instead?

    Shouldn't be difficult.

    post the output of bcdedit -enum -v
    That is beyond my expertise.

    No expertise required. Just paste bcdedit -enum -v into an elevated command prompt and hit Enter. Then copy the cmd window content (rightclick > select all > right click anywhere on the highlighted area > it's now on the clipboard > paste it here).

    My fault, It should be bcdedit -enum all -v

    Looking for the Device Options entry.

    At a guess it will like this:
    Device options
    --------------
    identifier {whatever}
    description Macrium Reflect System Recovery
    ramdisksdidevice partition=C:
    ramdisksdipath [C:]\boot\macrium\macrium.sdi
