this happened to me when someone hid a clone flooder inside a huge mp3 player ;-]
try unloading all scripts and try again.

Strange behavior can often be caused by viruses. All kinds of things can happen, programs closing by themselves, disk drives opening and probably programs that are the cause of the infection (mIRC is used in a lot of trojans for various reasons) can be using 100% CPU usage!

Read this post and http://www.mirc.co.uk/help/virus.html

G'luck!
