mIRC is not spyware. It's a program that many people use as a way to chat,
download and share files, etc. This is the first that I've heard of anything
bad comming from mIRC. I think it's not the program that's giving you
trouble, but more of a script that is in your computer doing it.

I would suggest going to http://mIRC.com and trying to contact someone about
your problems.
