Duplicate PayPal options

A client who I’ve developed a site for has an account with Paypal Website Payments Pro. I’ve added all his details into a Magento site, and selected the ‘Website Payments Pro’ option from the Paypal menu.

However, when I go to the front end of the site, I get two Paypal options during the final stage of the checkout process. One has a Paypal logo and says ‘What is Paypal?’ next to it, and ‘You will be redirected to the PayPal website’ underneath it. The other Just says PayPal and enables me to pay directly through the site. Question is, how do I deactivate the first option?

I’ve gone back to the admin area, and I noticed that when I select the Website Payments Pro option, the Express Checkout option also gets automatically selected, without the option to turn it off.

Any suggestions?
