After installing Windows 98, all my chat softwares: mIRC, ICQ and MS Chat would not connect.  All my other internet softwares, such as; IE40, Communicator and EudoraPro are just surfing finely.  And I have also re-installed all my chat softwares, updated them to 32-bit versions but still cannot connect.  Connection time to my ISP also increased, what can be wrong?

Might it be that you selected a proxy-server for all connections in your control-panel/internet-settings? If you try a proxy-autoconfiguration and the proxy of your ISP does not support the Port 6666 and 6667 then you have to disable the proxy for this service(IRC).
