That option is still present because the Windows Recovery Console is still on your system. It is not removed along with ComboFix. The reason for this is that having the Recovery Console on the system provides powerful recovery options in the event of system failure for any number of reasons. Without the Recovery Console, if Windows XP fails to boot for some reason your options for recovery are very limited. Furthermore, removing the Recovery console will not significantly improve your boot time (about 3 seconds faster)
That being said, the option can be removed by removing the Recovery Console. If you're determined to do this. . . let me know in a reply to this thread and I'll let you know how.
