Hey guys, for some reason my highlights keep getting deleted. I added them again a day or two ago and just had to do it again. So far, they're still there but any idea what might be happening and how to fix it?

Thanks.

It's hard to say what the cause of data corruption is. Are you shutting down mirc improperly? Does this happen in a completely clean install of mIRC?

in mIRC type:

//echo -a $script(0) $dll(0) $com(0) $version $md5($mircexe,2) $os

Report the results here.

The other questions need answering too, but given a completely clean install I'd say there's a chance windows shutdown improperly and/or you close mirc by shutting down windows. Generally windows gives programs time to respond to a shutdown request but if they don't react in time Windows kills the process, which could cause data loss. Make sure you close mIRC before shutting down windows, if that's how you're doing it.
