Boot into DOS (preferred) or safe mode and do it from there and/or get virus protection software.

Yeah, you definately should have virus protection if you're on IRC... Make sure mIRC's DCC settings are set to prompt for all DCCs and auto accept is OFF.

Delete mIRC and download it again. You really shouldn't go to any of the ads that you get popups for.
