Unwanted Update Messages

I got a new laptop with XP Home. The problem I have is every time I get online the popup update messages come up. The biggest problem is with Windows Messager that wants me to update to 4.7. I don't want the update so how can I keep the update message from coming up?

Thanks for the info. I found that Windows Messenger was running in background and when I was able to turn it off the update message stoped.
