Ok eveytime I run Mirc it dont remmber what channels I added and some times I have No server list! I can exit mirc and restart it and some times it right and will even auto join my channel other times its like a fresh install!


I read a post in mirc.ini file to be copyed , And also read somthing it might be a virus. Im running my CA right now to see if it fines one and also Spybot. So far nothing.

Create a text (txt) file in your mIRC folder and name it mirc.ini, then run mIRC and start from there.

-

From versions.txt

16/08/2007 - mIRC v6.3

Changes:
..
20. For Vista compatibility, new installations of mIRC now save all settings in the User's "Application Data\mIRC" folder by efault.

However, if the installer or mIRC find mirc.ini in the same folder as mirc.exe they will use the mirc.exe folder for all settings. Users installing over an old version of mIRC should therefore see no change in behaviour.

The installer is now also aware of administrator and standard user accounts and installs mIRC accordingly.

As a note, if you haven't changed your settings, your files may not show the .txt extension, so if you rename it to mIRC.ini, it will really be mIRC.ini.txt, which won't work. You'll know if it works because the icon will change and you'll also see the extension before renaming it. If you are still using default settings, you can go into a folder and go to the Tools > Folder Options > View, then uncheck the Hide extensions for known filetypes option. (Those instructions should work for XP and Vista... not sure about other OS versions).
