Hello

I have used mirc many times before so i know the basics of using mirc.

The problem im getting is that mirc crashes right after i /msg a bot to get a file. Mirc shows not responding with the error code 0x0000005 (goggle says its a illegal access of memory or something along those lines). I have set up all the settings correctly so that it can receive files.

This just started happening recently when i changed hard drives. On my old hard drive (same hardware) mirc worked...although i was using a older version of mirc.

The problem is that this new hard drive is a entry level 750gb western digital server HD. It works flawlessly with other applications. I have even run the disc check&error program to check the hard drive with no errors showing.

Also i have installed mirc on a secondary hard drive i have in my computer and i still have the same problem. I have even gone as far as installing windows again.

I do not think is has anything to do with my internet connection, router or modem because i am able to use mirc on my notebook without any problems.

Then i thought that my ram was the problem but i have ran mirc with each piece of ram separately with the problem still pertaining. Unless both pieces of my ram are messed up? Or could it be that somehow the ram that i have does not like the new HD that i put in?

I have used 2 different mirc programs. The latest mirc program from the mirc 6.31 and sysreset 2.55.

Any help would be appreciated.

Thank You.

What happens if you unload sysreset, and just try mIRC on its own?

Also, show us the results of this command:

Code:
//echo -a MD5 sum -> $md5($mircexe)

That's a bad install.

Get a clean install from www.mirc.com (or one of the official mirrors) and install it again. It should have a MD5 sum of: 6a7ceb4fcddbea8ca9294ac629d4c9f5

mmm...thats weird because i did download mirc from this website.

Well at least now i know that it has something to do with the program not my hardware. I will try to completely remove mirc from my computer and install again. Will post results later.

Thank you for your feedback.

OK first of all the identifier to check the validity of mirc.exe is $md5($mircexe, 2) - without the 2 for the second parameter it's calculating a digest of the filename as a peice of text instead of for the file it's pointing to. For the file it should return e72425de3cb77a4ddff9289f728017b4.

Assuming that isn't the problem you need to make sure there aren't any scripts still loaded. I know you said you removed sysreset but I wouldn't count on a script unloading itself correctly. To see if you have any scripts loaded open up the Scripts Editor and go to the Remotes tab. From there you can unload all scripts from the menubar. Restart mIRC (this is important!), and then see if mIRC still crashes.

If the problem still isn't fixed you might want to run a virus scan to make sure that isn't the problem. If the issue is still occurring try temporarily disabling your Anti-Virus software and see if that fixes it.
