not really,  all you can do is minimize it.

what I would do is convert it into a vb script,  when the vbscript runs, you can configure if it will be visible or not...

is it a big long bat file,  or simple..

If you put the script into a Group Policy you can set them to run invisible.

User Configuration|ADministrative Templates|System|Scripts|Run Logon Scripts Visible is the policy.

If the Logon script is called from the GPO (Active Directory) as a CMD file and this setting is set to Disabled, it should hide the logon script.

Let me know if you need help with this.

How are you starting the batch file. Is this a login script (set in the user account)... or is it through AD group policy? If it is either of these then you would have to use a cmd or bat file to kick off the vbscript, defeating the purpose.
