Use plain mIRC and download it from http://www.mirc.com/get.html
Maybe you have a backdoor in your scripts or you have a fake mIRC version.
Do *not* use scripts which you don't know.
And never type commands given by an untrusted person.

Sorry, but what is "mirc invisoin" ?
It could be, use last version of mIRC (v6.12) and use trusted scripts.
You said that you are using Norton Firewall, use an antivirus software, too.
Maybe you are infected with a trojan or something.

InvisioN is a yucky script, and often quite insecure.


Well. At least I won lunch.
Good philosophy, see good in bad, I like!

Not that I am unsympathetic with your problem, but this is exactly why we advise people not to involve themselves in Fserve's, XDCC issues and mass/illegal file trading at all. You are liable for being infected with a virus, and the people that hang around in those kinds of communities are lamers who delight in nothing but exploiting someone's computer or in some way harming their Internet connection or PC (on top of evading bans, being rude to those in authority "just cuz they can" and generally making a nuisance of themselves). If you stick to using IRC for chatting, which is what it's meant for, then it's more likely you'll avoid these situations (but of course not certain).

As for your problem, make sure you're free of infections by using some of the following:

The Cleaner (Trojan scanner)
SwatIT (Trojan scanner)
Trendmicro (Online virus scan)
AVG (Virus scanner)

All of the above are free to use or try. You may indeed use them all, but make sure you don't use them at the same time as they may interfere with each other.

You might also like to put Norton on it's very highest and most sensitive settings for now. Furthermore, there is a blocking feature on Norton Personal Firewall which terminates all outgoing and incoming connections. This will cause you to disconnect, but it might help prevent the person hacking you if that is indeed what they are doing.

If it detects any IPs, you can also block them from connecting to your computer in any way using NPF's IP blocking feature.

G'luck!

Regards,


Mentality/Chris

"...i herd ther was an update patch for mirc to v6.13..."
NO! last OFFICAL version is v6.12
get it from http://www.mirc.com/get.html

Khaled (author) never release a patch, he release new VERSIONs
So don't use that insecure script, and use v6.12 (no patches or something)

No. That is infact mirc613.win32.virus.bad.bad.bad. Do NOT download it.

You will find purity and cleanliness here.
