Previously, I never EVER had this issue.
I had to reset my computer to factory settings (I do this every year), and I reinstalled mirc. I don't like the new version, I can't stand it.
I use version 6.17 and always had. It used to run fine.
Now, I can connect fine, however after a few mins of being connected to a server, my computer goes extremely slow. It takes forever to respond. This is when I have firefox open, and even when I don't have anything else running.
I don't have connection issues, the irc client just lags.. what is wrong?
