No you are wrong. /dll and /run are enabled by default. Download a *Fresh* copy of mIRC from one of the mirrors, Uncheck the boxes that say "Keep my current settings", and install mIRC to your desktop. I formatted my disk just last week and did a clean install of mIRC , so there is no lingering registry settings. All such info is stored in the mIRC.ini, anyway. And FYI, I just downloaded mIRC again to verify that I'm correct. Even if I wasn't correct, it doesn't invalidate the point of my post at all.
