I've noticed scripts running on my computer, so I ran some of my own.
the .BAT files seem to cause many problems.

ECHO OFF
CLS
ECHO ..TXT..
CALL ...file...
EXIT

Is there any help?

I'm not sure I understand the problem...?
Where are the characters vanishing from?
What scripts are running?
What .BAT file is causing the problem?

I've got more problems.
The following BAT gives me a black screen of death, user breakable.

CALL START CMD

I didn't think it would work, but it does.

I've noticed on several of my posts on ATS, the char's will dissapeare or even re-arrange.

This occurs after running BAT's.

ECHO OFF seems to cause the most prob's.

I have no idea how to relate batch (BAT) files to your Internet Browser.

There is no reason any batch files should be running (even autoexec.bat is unnecessary...), and my suggestion is that you should prevent any of them from running at startup. Why do you run batch files?

What operating system do you use? Batch files were mostly used in the time of DOS, and these days there is little to no use for them.

ECHO OFF is a DOS command that basically turns off a "reply" from the computer. When you turn echo on, then the PC will repeat to you every command that you typed in.

CALL START CMD "calls" an executable, which is in this case your DOS command prompt. It's supposed to give you a "black screen" but you should at least see "C:\>"...

All that said, I still don't understand your problem. Please explain to me why you are using or even mention BATs when you're posting on ATS. Vanishing/scrambled characters can be caused by several things, like a virus, keyboard (or other Windows) settings or browser settings to name a few...
