Installed Windows Recovery, via Combofix, but now the startup (Dos) screen exits in 2 seconds, not giving time to make a selection. It was 30 seconds, prior. How do I change it back ?

Right-click on the My Computer icon on your desktop or in your Start menu and choose Properties from the popup menu.

Select the Advanced tab, and then the Settings button under Startup and Recovery You should see a window like this:

Change the number in the Time to display list of operating systems field to however many seconds you want. Then click OK. That should do it.

How to edit the Boot.ini file in Windows XP http://support.microsoft.com/kb/289022

It is suggested to backup the Boot.ini file before editing.

Edit to add: Andrew's way is safer & quicker! :)
