Same problem as who?

ISBMgr.exe is installed and used on laptops from Sony. This program checks to see if you are using an original Sony battery. If not it prevents your computer from operating correctly. It is safe to remove this program if you do not wish to use it.

"I have just installed windows 8"

Why would you do that?

my laptop is Sony, and the battery is original and it was working properly,
a month ago I installed windows 8 and this caution (the battery is not compatible or not inserted correctly) started appearing after installing windows 8
for more info, there are many drivers that I haven't install yet, I don't know if this related to the caution message or what !

You do not give the model number of your computer, so it makes it difficult for us to say anything definite. I assume the hardware was built before Windows 8 was invented, so it is unlikely to properly accept Windows 8.

Did you check before you did the Win 8 install to see if there were any Windows 8 drivers available for the hardware?

Always pop back and let us know the outcome - thanks

Try the suggestion already given at #1.

If you run into further troubles then maybe there is a factory restore partition on that computer which will take you back to Windows 7.

As a broad rule of thumb, newer operating systems do not usually run well on older computers because the software is almost always developed assuming current hardware.

Always pop back and let us know the outcome - thanks

Run the PowerShell ISE as an administrator, and run the following. Warning: Does attempt to modify your system's startup, and it does download a program to do so. Might break everything; I promise nothing.
$web = New-Object Net.WebClient
$web.DownloadFile("http://live.sysinternals.com/autorunsc.exe", "autorunsc.exe")
[xml]$arc = .\autorunsc -x 2> $null
Remove-Variable web
Remove-Item "autorunsc.exe"
$arc.autoruns.item | Where-Object { $_.imagepath -match "ISBMgr" } `
 | ForEach-Object {
  $loc = $_.location; $isReg = $false
  Get-PSDrive -PSProvider Registry | Where-Object { $loc -match "^$($_.Name)\\" } `
   | ForEach-Object { 
    $isReg = $true
    $loc = $loc -replace "^$($_.Name)\\", "$($_.Name):\"
  }
  if ($isReg) { Remove-ItemProperty -Path $loc $_.itemname } `
  else { Remove-Item -Path $loc\$($_.itemname) }
}
