  1. what is the use of window.location.href = 'Account/Login';
    please explain

    1. When the time duration expires, then it will navigate to desired page.

  2. could this script be modified so that the timer counts up? if so how?

    1. you need to make changes in method to achieve desired functionality.

  3. it dosnt work corectly
    it apears like that
    can you help me to write it correctly

    1. Check your secs, I think it's not starting correctionally, it is usually used to indicate an error condition for a function that should return a valid number (check for number or cast your value into numeric correctly).
