I suspect you're thinking of IRC, which is Internet Relay Chat, a way
to have multiple-person live text-based chat sessions.

I don't know what IRQ expands to, but I think the I part is Interrupt.
In any case, it has to do with computer interrupts, which have to do
with certain kinds of external devices, like modems and mice. IRQ
settings used to be much more arcane than they currently are; it's one
thing that Windows did simplify.

It's a kind of link you can set up in RoboHelp (and thus presumably
WinHelp in general).
