If you have Norton Anti Virus try disabling it and then reinstalling.

see this thread for help

This is a known windows bug relating to DDE, usually due to your version of windows running certain applications in the background which cause a DDE freeze.You might be able to get around it by closing all other applications, including applications hiding in the background, before trying to install mIRC.
