Lately when restarting my pc I get a console window with cscript in title of the console window after entering in my login credentials. I am running Windows XP sp3. It does not happen everytime but I would say that it is more than 50% of the time. The console window eventually goes away but start up is delayed because of it. I am not sure what this console window is doing or how it gets started. I also received (after restart and login) a warning stating that my battery is going bad and that I should get a new one. It had a link in the window. I believe these items are related. I just killed the window suspecting that this was some kind of mahlware. I ran Superantispyware free Edition and Malwarebytes. Superantispyware did find some entries which were quarantined but the cscript console window continues to pop up on restart. Can I get some assistance on cleaning up my pc? Am I posting to the correct Forum?

Thanks for your assistance.

Thanks
