unwanted,annoying messages

Have just upgraded to Windows XP Home form Windows 98.
Now, as soon as I am on the internet I start getting annoying and sometimes offensive/obscene messages/adverts through a 'messenger service'. Is there any way I can stop this? I use AOL as service provider as before, also have internet explorer, MSN and possibly more. (Who really wants a new computer!!!)
Wondered about trying to remove MSN as I never used this - don'r know if I had it, though I did have Internet Explorer. I only ever use instant messages with one person and could probably manage with e mail

Thanks, VoG. I've downloaded that and will see what happens!
