Did you set the same directory for v6.03 that you had for 5.9? If it's a different directory it's possible the virus doesn't affect mIRC in different folders.
Either way, you should have upgraded to version 6.12
The Trendmicro virus scanner does not remove a virus, so I suggest you download a good free virus scanner (personally, I recommend AVG
) and run a full system scan. That should safely remove your virus. To be sure it has, run the Trendmicro one after running a full system scan with AVG.
5.9 has a serious buffer overflow exploit, and 6.0 > 6.11 have a serious DCC exploit, therefore, I strongly suggest you upgrade.
I also suggest that in future, you do not:
- Download files off of other users without trusting them (this includes XDCC files etc).
- Go to any websites which are advertised to you.
- Let other people use your computer without knowing what they are doing, especially if they use IRC.
