In a Windows 98 SE computer, at start up, I am having two warnings about outpostupdate.
Is outpostupdate.exe a malware?
If so, What can I do to remove it?

Try these ONLINE SCANNERS first:
Trend Micro Housecall: http://housecall60.trendmicro.com/en/start_corp.asp?id=scan
Panda ActiveScan: http://www.pandasoftware.com/products/activescan.htm
eTrust AV web scanner (CA): http://www3.ca.com/virusinfo/virusscan.aspx
windowsecurity: http://windowsecurity.com/trojanscan/

If none of them can remove it then try the free trial version of TrojanHunter

Setup & Configuration:

Once the program is installed it automatically configures to protect the system and All files. You should not need to change anything.

With the trial version of TrojanHunter you need to manually update the rule files before you can start scanning. Instructions: http://www.misec.net/trojanhunter/updating/

To do a full scan be sure the boxes are checked (green) beside your main hard drive folders, then click on Full Scan.

As I said don't use the trial version unless you have to. If you get infected by something worst then you will still have this tool as an option to use.
