grep. Seriously.

I know that by saying that I've immediately marked myself out as a crusty bearded Linux zealot, but this really is a "teach a man to fish" thing: spend a few hours learning the basics of grep, tail, less and UNIX pipes, and you'll be able to search and read IRC logs much more effectively than any point-and-click Windows app. And it'll be useful for doing other stuff too.

(Get cygwin if you need it, but since you mention having a shell account, I suspect you have everything you need already)

For a windows grep tool with a GUI, I'm quite satisfied with this.

I use bip (a bouncer : http://bip.t1r.net/) and the backlogging feature is quite cool.
