Just recently when i open up mIRC i am unable to access other programs that are running in the background by clicking on their link or by alt+tabbing.

The only way i have found to access the programs is to minimize mIRC and then choose the program.

Their must be an option which can fix and if you can help please reply and i dont count re-installing an option

Options >> Display >> Options >> Windows button >> uncheck mIRC main window always on top

I actually has this problem, and I checked to see if I by chance had checked that box in options. It seemed I didn't have, also as I remember I hadn't.
Anyway, apart from my bad grammar, I tried checking it, pressing ok, and saw the exact same behaviour, no difference. I then unchecked the box, and voila, suddenly I had no problems with seeing windows that should properly overlap mIRC.
so I'm trying to say, thanks for you advice, it gave me inspiration to work my problem out smile
