Do you have any scripts loaded? try type /remote off and see if it helps, to turn remote on again /remote on .


if ($me != tired) { return } | else { echo -a Get a pot of coffee now $+($me,.) }

That looks like the server may be sending text in a codepage instead of Unicode and mIRC 7.x won't display that correctly. A script could also cause that if it's trying to encode or decode something.

If it's a code page issue, you'll have to use mIRC 6.35 until/if the network upgrades to use Unicode. Letting them know that you support moving to Unicode may help to push them toward that option as knowing that people want a change is a good reason to provide that change.

If it's a script, you can stop using the script or find and change whatever part is causing the problem.

Neither. Maybe a virus/trojan. Now kaspersky 2013 is scanning files.... Some hours needed.
I have those strange characters also in mirc 6.17 without additional scripts, and also in xchat and kvirc.
And those characters in mirc were increasing when i went on beppegrillo dot it site with internet explorer 9 browser.
Many clones popups browser windows were coming, and a pc restart was needed.
