Hey all,

After years of no problems, I just suddenly started getting this problem an hour ago. This is what happens:

* Connecting to irc.rizon.net (6665)
-
Please wait while we process your connection.
-
-irc.xstaticsolutions.com- *** Looking up your hostname...
-
-irc.xstaticsolutions.com- *** Checking Ident
-
* Identd request from 66.111.37.204
* Identd replied: 1597, 6665 : USERID : identd : ********
-
* [10053] Software caused connection abort

It will just sit there for ten minutes, then give the [10053] error. I've tried disabling identd, and changing my userid, but nothing worked.
Can anyone help me PLEASE?

Prepare to do a lot of reading, then read this sticky. It's not 100%, but there are a number of solutions that people have found that work for this error.

Somehow, I don't think that that topic helps me. I skimmed it - but my problem is not that I'm not connecting - I am, and quite immediately. The problem is clearly some kind of issue with identd that just started happening for no reason.
i also installed hydraIRC and tried that, same problem as well. So somehow my computer got messed up and it is affecting any attempt I make to get into IRC.
With this in mind, can anyone suggest anything, short of reinstalling Windows?
