I'm running a Windows 2003 Server Domain, all member clients were running MSN Messenger and Google Talk software successfullt.
I've apply "Windows Firewall" settings through group policy, MSN and Google Talk stop working. Now the problem is after re-setting the Windows Firewall setting to "Not Configured", still MSN and Google Talk is not working on any clients.

Please suggest any situation to corrct it.

by "after re-setting the windows firewall setting to "not configured"" i assume you mean changing that setting in AD? if so...it's possible that the client's are still set to have it on...(ad is not very good at managing the windows firewall...don't know why...but it's just not) try renabling that gpo but configure it to add google talk and msn messenger into the exceptions list in the firewall setting...this SHOULD turn the firewalls back on...but allow traffic from both google talk and msn back through
