mIRC32 program loads automatically on Windows Start-Up
  

I'm using Windows XP and installed Avast anti virus recently. My system was working very slow for the last 2 days. I have been seeing an unknown process everytime when i start my computer. I have never seen this process earlier in my task manager. I'm not aware whether it is a Anti-Virus or a system process.

mIRC32 is not a Virus. It is a Internet Relay Chat. The IRC Network is social network where people from different countries have a discussion. It can be used for creating your own chat rooms or even to be a part of chat rooms which already exists. With the help of your browser you can also get yourself educated on mIRC's usage.
