what you can do is go to control panel..click add/remove programs and see if...mIRC 6.2 .

if it is remove it

its some sort of chat program that someone may have installed

come back here if there are problems

It sounds like you have an IRC bot on your computer. I'd take a look at your HiJack This log, but I"m about to go to bed. I have added it to my list of items to look at when I come back tomorrow.

In the meantime, from the description in one of your previous posts, I might now which bot it is.

Go to Start > Run and paste the following in C:\windows\system32\drivers\put.txt and press OK.

If a Notepad file opens up, paste the first few lines of the contents. If they match up with what I suspect, I can give you further instructions.

If it says that the file cannot be found, just let me know, and I'll take a look at the log if someone hasn't already responded.
