I get a dialog with the following error message sometimes when I close mIRC:


Title: mirc.exe - Application Error

The instruction at "0x7c91e9c9" referenced memory at "0x013d0030". The memory could not be "read"

Click on OK to terminate the program.


Any help would be great! Thanks

I have hear about this error before but only in windows 2000 without service pack 1 (service pack 1 solve the problem)

Also some people have reported this problem when using hyperthreading (You have a celeron so thi isn't your problem)

Mircosof words for this problem are:
CAUSE
This behavior occurs because the operating system does not allocate a large enough buffer for the maximum string length permitted. When the data is greater than the buffer size, the Winlogon service terminates abnormally and your computer generates the error message.

Mirc by itself can't cause something like this .Do you use a script?A script with some "unknown" and not well tested dlls can cause memory errors

If you don't use a script maybe it is something wrong with your OS.Installing your OS again every 6 months is always a very good idea

Finally do a memory test ,but i dont believe it is a hardware error.Just do it to be 100% sure

had that problem too, but only a few times, and only since i installed SP2 on XP, i did some testing and it seems to be several dll's that can cause this (as far as i found out), docking and window watching dll's is the result i came to on this.

mirc 6.16 / XP sp2 / Pentium M 1700 (Hp pavilion notebook)
