Ignore the message, just make sure you don't have any windows like internet explorer open. Or any other program that uses the internet.

When you install zone alarm, it will give you a slight tutorial on how to use it. However, it's not the easiest thing to understand.

All you need to remember is: It will ask everytime a program attempts to use the internet. Click the "don't ask me again" and then YES if you want the program to always be able to use the internet without your permission (such as Internet Explorer or Outlook Express). Eventually, it will quiet down and stop popping up all the time.
