When I load mIRC it freezes for like 30 seconds without doing anything (no CPU/HD actvity).
I've checked for viruses/spyware and nothing found, this only happens with mIRC, and tried loading mIRC when AV/spyware checker is off, no difference.
Version is 6.16 but it happens with older versions too.
This started without any action taken by me, any help?

edit: I tried loading mIRC with remote off so it's not that too.

Do you get the same thing with the most recent version (6.17)?

Yeah.
I've tried nearly everything, even on efnet #mirc.
Have no clue whats the problem, but the freeze is on some WaitForObj which has a 1sec timeout, which doesn't make sense

do you have a cleanly installed mIRC without scripts? remove all scripts, make a clean install or /!remote off and restart mIRC.

see if the problem still exists. if it does not, it will probably be one of the scripts you might have installed


If it ain't broken, don't fix it!

I've found it!
Code:
Call stack of thread 000007B0
Address    Stack      Procedure / arguments                                          Called from                   Frame

014DFF18   77E42439   ntdll.ZwDelayExecution                                         kernel32.77E42433             014DFF7C
014DFF1C   00000000     Arg1 = 00000000
014DFF20   014DFF54     Arg2 = 014DFF54
014DFF80   77E424B7   ? kernel32.SleepEx                                             kernel32.77E424B2             014DFF7C
014DFF84   0000EA60     Timeout = 60000. ms
014DFF88   00000000     Alertable = FALSE
014DFF90   776B22A0   ? kernel32.Sleep                                               ole32.776B229A                014DFF8C
014DFF94   0000EA60     Timeout = 60000. ms

It seems that a thread is created which sleeps for a minute(or is it two? dunno lol :S).
This [thread 000007B0] isn't the main thread. Anyone has an idea why this happens?

Corrupt/damaged system files, perhaps. Perform system repair (albeit no need to re-format :P)


<Ingo> I can't uninstall it, there seems to be some kind of "Uninstall Shield"

Any chance a Developer would answer what creates each thread? and what could be the problem? the error is when xpsp2res.dll loads.
