A friend of mine has his mIRC hangup a lot lately since he has installed SP2.

This is what appcompat.txt has:

So is it an XP bug, a mIRC bug or what?

Not sure which it's a problem with, but I don't experience this with SP2 on XP Pro.

Check your Application Event logs for errors.

Start -> Control Panel -> Administrative Tools -> Event Logs


Look in the Application logs.

The weird thing is that after my friend has uninstalled his SP2 the problem was solved. I wonder if it has to do with the tcpip limitations that microsoft has added to the SP2. confused

Anyway, It will be very hard for me to belive that its really has to do with the tcpip limitations cause he was connected to 1 network only (which means only 1 tcpip connection from mIRC).

He can't check for the log anymore cause he uninstalled SP2 and run mirc few times after.

this limitation is only for HALF OPEN connections - so if the connection is established it you have 10 again...

this will prevent DDOS Attacks
