Hi,

Strange thing happened to me today. When I opened my MIRC, the application freezed for about 1 minute before it can connect to a server. There's nothing you can click on or can be done at that moment but my other applications work fine, and this's just happened today, yesterday it was fine. Can anybody has any idea of what might happen? Thanks very much, your help is much appreciated.

James

Did you add any scripts that run ON START? If so, I'd be checking them.

Hi Watchdog

Thanks for replying my email, in fact I didn't add any script on, I have no idea how to do that. smile When I found out that the MIRC application freezed, I tried to uninstalled the whole thing and installed it again, but same thing happened. At first I thought it was my settings, and I also worried about my computer being hacked..... that kind of stuff (because I did leave the computer on with internet connection all night long, then I found out this happneed the next morning) Anyway, I really appreciated your help. It means a lot to me : ) Thank you so much.

James

Try rebooting your machine and then try opening mIRC again. Whatever the issue is might correct itself.

wouldnt hurt to run a virus scan to be on the safe side. one of the free online ones that are good at catching IRC type things is at http://housecall.trendmicro.com

Thanks Parabrat

I'll try this scan and see if the IRC application got infected. I'l;l post the result here tomorrow, besides do you guys know another IRC applications that can access to the same server / connect to the same group of people? I like MIRC but this freezing's driving me nuts. Thank you all.
