Windows 7: command prompt appears then disappears

What you're seeing is the batch file starting, executing (running), and completing. Upon completion, the 'command prompt' disappears, as the batch file is finished.

If you'd like the batch file to not disappear upon completion, I'd recommend adding "pause" to the end of it.

when i try to open a .bat file command prompt quickly opens and closes
This is quite normal depending on what the BAT file does. Simple operations only last a few seconds, which explains the command prompt window disappearing so quickly.
