I am going to copy and paste results from Belarc Advisor here. My son uses mIRC chat and this is relatively new computer. Since getting this new PC his mIRC is extremely slow. I haven't a clue where to look for the answer. He says it takes a minute to get his words to show and when it does finally show a whole lot of chat that wasn't previously showing then floods his screen.

We use protection against trojans etc and he does not accept file transfers.

Any ideas? Thank you! Moonifa

Are you using Dial up?

The servers may be busy at the time, but it sounds like it's a computer problem. Go to and download Ad aware 6 and Spybot search and Destroy. Scan, and delete all spyware.

Also, do you have enough memory? This could be the problem. Go to and download FreeRAMXP Pro, and run it. It will clear the memory, and make applications run faster.

Hope this helps!
