I had the same happen to me a few days ago -- something malicious using
mIRC to actually run the script. It appears that both the script or
extension DLL and mIRC were added by the attack, not a hole in my
installed copy.

The nasties resided in c:\WINNT\System32 -- look in there, mine was
explorer.exe and explorer.dll.  You can recognize them as their file
properties has no version info tab.
