Icq has many different files it uses to save the configuration and history, so my best suggestion (and I have done this) is the following. Burn the entire ICQ directory to a a cd, after you reinstall 98 reload ICQ (same version) then copy the files back from the cd to the folder it will restore everything.  After you have copied them back over you may need to change the file attrib's as they will be read only.

Defualt install path to the folder you need.  C:\Program Files\ICQ
