What is and how do I remove AOL Core Services - Software Update 3869.9.20 Pop-up?

I have a client with Win XP and the latest version of AIM installed.  She is continually getting a popup saying:

Active Update

AOL Core Services - Software Update: This update is necessary to enhance AOL's ability to resolve potential problems with your online experience...

Install Now

Update 3869.9.20

When I google it this is the only info I find - http://www.bigblueball.com/forums/aim-support/34677-active-update-aol-core-services-software-update-aim.html.

Please help.  Thank you.

this is just a routine AOL, memory hogging update.

My advice is to try using GAIM for instant messaging, it is less bulky than AIM. and supports multiple IM protocols
