Install Linux. :D Ok, just kidding. What exactly are you trying to do? I don't know if I can be much help, I still get to send DCC files. :( But I can always try. Are you just trying to hide your information?

What about setting up a firewall while you use mIRC? Just block all the ports but the ones you need. I'ved used mIRC for a long time. I have never had anyone hack into my computer yet. (knocks on wood). I guess it would depend on where you go though.

The only firewall program, I have is the one that came with my
McAfee antivirus program. How do I block stuff, you know what I mean, what you said.....

My understanding is that the "real" hackers hang out virtually in mIRC. That's why you have to do the "extraordinary" configuration measures in your mIRC client to hide info from them. If you don't use it, I wouldn't worry about it.
