I have this error too. My case is a little different too. It seems that all of the computers on the campus server that I am on have the same thing too. I can't connect to any server through mIRC. When I open it up, it tries to auto connect and brings up the "[10053] Software caused connection abort." If anyone has any idea of what this could be that would be great.

I'm running Xp through a campus connection, It works fine on my laptop when I'm at home, but when I'm on campus I can't connect. Any help would be greatly welcomed, I miss talking on mIRC.
