After installing ICQ beta 99, I have encountered a problem.....

Oftentimes, after connection to WWW, and ICQ for a bit, the mousepointer will not move above the bottom sixth of my screen, yet buttons at the top will highlight as if it is there.....

Which display-adapter?
Does the manufacturer have newer device-drivers on their web-site, or are the drivers in Win98 the "newest" available?
Try lowering the hardware ecesleration in your display settings.  It's in the advanced option, under performance.  Drop it down one notch and see if this problem is fixed.
