I use SIM (SIM Instant Messenger) on Linux, which is the best for me.
It has a Windows version too, you might want to try it:
I have Yahoo, Gtalk, ICQ and MSN configured in it (could also have
AIM, jabber, livejournal,etc).

Check the screenshot I took at: http://www.noticiaslinux.com.br/eduardo/sim.png
Note that it can group people who have multiple IMs.
