Hi all. I use mIRC and have for about three years now happily chatting along. In the last two weeks, I have been receiving the "10053 Software Caused Connection Abort" after inactivity (meaning not typing any text into the chat). This happens after approx. 5 minutes of inactivity. I have never had this problem. My only thoughts so far and my only downloads have been the recent Microsoft security updates and possibly something called "Service Pack 3". I have read there are winsock repairs...but it seems odd that it "just started to happen" after years of no problems.

If there is a winsock fix out there...can you guide and direct me to it IF this seems to be the problem. Many of the posts I have read on mIRC's help page are extremely old. I just wonder if its something that was recently changed when I downloaded a fix from Microsoft? Possibly some sort of conflict with a security patch?

Thank so much.

Pam

that forum suggests that it's just a connection time out....is the error showing up within mIRC....or is it a windows error?

It is only in the mIRC status window. It doesn't appear to be a Windows error. It just seems odd that it would suddenly ping me out or rather disconnect me with a 10053 software caused connection abort error after inactivity when I was able to hang about in an open chat window for hours (I'm an op on this particular chat) without pinging out.
