Doing a Wait in Batch File

Specs: Windows 2003 Server, Quad Core / 4Gig
I need a wait ability in a Batch file to wait for a service to stop before it continues to the next command. Here is my code...

sc stop "Backup Exec System Recovery"
del "C:\Documents and Settings\All Users\Application Data\Symantec\FileBackup\catalog.dat"
sc start "Backup Exec System Recovery"

I need a wait after the SC because it will not delete the file while the service is still running.

If SC is a exe:

sc stop "Backup Exec System Recovery"
tasklist | find /i "sc.exe" >nul
if not %errorlevel%==1 goto :pause
del c:\.....

ricardo647's solution should work.

But if you want to wait a certain amount of time, you can do

PING -n 11 >NUL

That will simply ping your computer 11 times (starting now.)
It will cause the batch file to pause for 10 seconds.
