hi friends

  does the chat like yahoo messenger vulnerable for hacking.I was asking this because last couple of weeks before when i was chatting the my chat screen with one person started acting wierd it shows some colors.then what ever typed gets repeated and some times all get mixed like that.I am using windows 98se with dail up for net connection.After 1 week i was not able to connect to the internet.it will dial and get connected to remote modem but no sites get displayed.I used Vital Agent(lucent technology) a software to check net connection.it aslo shows the same thing that it cannot find get any webpages.It gives the message that the check the protocols.Checked that and i didnt find any problems with that.I reinstalled windows again the samne problem.So next time i formated c: and done freah installation then that was fine.Now I am using the zone alarm software to check hacking and last time when I was chatting zone alarm showed that 5 hacking attempts was blocked .Advise me in this
