Hello,
As much of you are fully aware of, there is a trojan that is spreading through IRC via porn advertisements. I'm unaware of anything it does other than establish some scripts onto your mIRC, of which continues to spam the advertisement to others. Now - you can reinstall mIRC, sounds good huh? Well what about the remnants of the stuff left over of which may even install itsself onto your mIRC once again?
Any help for those out there?

Simply reinstalling mIRC isnt going to necessarily solve the prob. There are numerous sites that help with removing trojans, that give detailed info on what to look for, and free online scanners for those nasties that manage to disable or hide from onboard scanners.
You can find resource lists here and here
