I have something called driverupdate.exe
It is installed in the x86 folders. I am wondering if it is malware and how to remove it.
Here is the screen shot of that program\

RBA_IT......Welcome to BC !
You definitely want to get rid of that program as Aura pointed out.
It is likely in your list of installed programs but many complain they can't uninstall from there. Use Download Revo Uninstaller Freeware in Advanced Mode to uninstall.
It would be a good idea for you to run some other adware and malware scans as it seems that program got on your computer without your consent.
Download AdwCleaner by Xplode onto your desktop.
Use CCleaner to remove Temporary files, program caches, cookies, logs, etc. Use the Default settings. No need to use the
Registry Cleaning Tool...risky. Pay close attention while installing and UNcheck offers of toolbars....especially Google.
After install, open CCleaner and run by clicking on the Run Cleaner button in the bottom right corner.
Download Malwarebytes' Anti-Malware from Here
Double-click mbam-setup-2.X.X.XXXX.exe to install the application (X's are the current version number).
