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.
