This is Visual IRC (ViRC), packaged with patchlevel 2 in a full
installer. Done with permission of the author, and I decided to post
it here in case anyone else found it useful. The only changes were to
incorporate the patched files that were previously distributed
separately, and to replace the message board url with the Google
Groups url.

 Just downloaded this, and Norton detects a threat, WS.Reputation.1, and automatically removes the file.
The two mirrors are not operational.

Cannot find manual update instructions on v-IRC site, although I may be blind.

Not cool, folks.

Is anyone paying any attention to this app at all? Or is it an orphan?

There's no virus in the file, but apparently Norton has a "feature" that labels any program it doesn't see very often as a threat called WS.Reputation.1. Here's an explanation and workaround:


Personally, I prefer Microsoft Security Essentials.

To update manually, first install ViRC 2.0, then extract the 2.0pl2 files into the installation folder, overwriting the files with the same names.

ViRC has not been under active development for a long time - the last true release was in 2004. I have less free time for hobbyist development these days, and since I don't use IRC anymore, I spend it on other projects. ViRC is open source (GPL) and the code is at http://sourceforge.net/projects/visualirc/ in case anyone cares to pick it up, but so far no one has asked.
