hi, i recently created an IRC server and debugged it. It worked good but then when i closed it it returned a large signed integer. Then when I ran it again the bind function returned with WSAerror 10048 which means the socket is still open. So I used netstat -a -n -o to view the process IDs associated with the socket, and I found that the port was still in use. So I went into task manager to find the process and it didn't even exist! I have to restart my system for the socket to be freed and then my program works again. Could this be caused by a rootkit in my system?
