I've been running a trivia bot for a couple years and only recently ran into a problem. For some reason, when I start the script, it takes a couple minutes to start mIRC up. Then, once it's up, it works normally... except one thing. When I open Remotes, it opens fine, saves/loads fine and everything... but when I press OK, it takes a couple minutes to close the Remotes window (or aliases or whatever). During that period, the script/mirc is frozen and using about 100% of CPU. Ctrl-Break doesn't do anything since it's not a script that's running, but the Remotes trying to close.
I tried updating it from 6.14 to 6.16 and had the same results, so I know it's not the EXE. Any other possibilities?
