    Default mIRC question

    Is mIRC a bad program, like a PSP? I know that some av and anti-spyware programs try to block it but I'm wondering if it's dangerous if I'm using it to download files from a channel I know very well.

    Downloading using mIRC is as bad as downloading from an unknown website. Unless you completly trust the source, its dangerous.

    Personally i dont trust mIRC, but many swear by it, and everyones opinion on it will differ. You are taking a risk, but if your using it to transfer files from someone you actually know personally then it *should* be ok.

    If your downloading copywrited material, then your heading for trouble.
    Always remember you're unique.
