First of all, you need to disable it in the startup menu.

I recommend Startup Inspector for that.

Startup Inspector (manages startup menu helps you identify aps in the startup menu so you can disable unnecessary programs from running in the background when they are not needed)

And

Startup Monitor (a small freeware ap available on the same page to notify you and require your permission for any program to add itself to your startup menu)

http://www.windowsstartup.com/download.php

After that, if you want to uninstall it completely use add/remove programs in the control panel.

Do you still have Outpost in your program menu?
If so, it may have its own uninstaller.

If it is in your start/program menu rest your cursor on it and see if a submenu opens that has an uninstaller.

I would think it would be in add/remove programs though - it may be in there under another name, possibly the publisher, Agnitum.

In any case, use Windows Explorer (use classic view) to find Outpost on the drive on which it is installed.

Click on the Outpost file in the left pane.
(usually C:\Program files\Agnitum\Outpost Firewall 1.0)

In the right pane look for unwise.exe, which is the uninstaller.
Double click on it and the uninstaller should start.
