First question is whether that console is desired in the first place. 
It may depend on which GUI library you're using (wx, tkinterf, ...) but
Windows has a habit of requiring a console to be sitting around for each
application, just in case it decides to display something on it.  The
usual workaround is to run PythonW.exe instead of Python.exe.   One way
to cause this is to rename the main script to have an extension of .pyw
instead of .py  , assuming the appropriate file associations exist.
