Just Connected - But Some Software Probs

Hi! I just got my ADSL activated this afternoon. I'm connecting with the Plusnet Binatone USB modem. Everything is working fine with IE and OE but I can't get Opera 7.11 or 'The Bat' to work at all. They are my preferred browser and mail client.

Also, MSN Messenger refuses to log-in. After trying it comes up with this error message:

" We could not sign you in to MSN Messenger. It appears that you are
behind a firewall that might be preventing you from connecting to the
.NET Messenger service. 0x81000365"

I am indeed behind a firewall - Zone Alarm free version - but closing ZA makes no difference.

Any suggestions re any of the above would be gratefully received.I'm running Win98SE

Further to that, Opera is now working. I just had to uncheck 'Enable proxy servers' in Quick Preferences and it leapt into action. That's a relief, I couldn't have lived with IE again after a year of using Opera for everything!
