I had recently installed MS Proxy Client, and found out it wasn't useful and uninstalled it. The problem is that afterwards, none of my internet applications worked. I even tried going through W98SE setup again, but after waiting SOOOO long, I still had the same problem. Every internet-based application said that some winsock 2 dll was found, but it wasn't installed properly (registered?). Well, Windows setup didn't do anything, so what can I do? I really hope I don't have to take off Windows 98 and reinstall it. Only IE actually starts up, but it won't even try to dial out and even if I do it manually, it won't recognize anything.
