Unwanted instant messaging

Hi, can anyone help. I am receiving several times per day, an instant message offering me live sex videos. I can just keep clicking the X but my children of 8 and 11 also use the computer. There is no way for me to unsubscribe, obviously I didn't subscribe in the first place. Is this something to do with MSN. If so how do I disable it. I keep exiting MSN, signing out, closing it but the little person icon just keeps coming back. I am scared to contact the website in case it is something hideous and I get listed as a contact. Surely this is not legal. Thanks.

Can you open the Windows/MSN messenger window? Then go to Tools - Manage contacts - Delete a contact and see if this person is on the list. If so try deleting it.

would it help to go into messenger Tools\options\privacy, then set to 'block' 'all others'. you have 2 lists 'allow' and 'block' people that are blocked cant see your online status,and cant send you messages.

Yes, I clicked on the link provided by jazzypop and have disabled messenger. Have had none since. On the morning before I received this advice I actually had 12 of these things on my screen overnight.
