In the last couple of days everytime I start up my PC, after loading the desktop, I get this message box....

"ZoneAlarm needs to check with the ZoneAlarm Servers for updated junk mail blocking rules and techniques.

You are currently not connected to the Internet. Would you like to connect to the Internet now?"

This must have been added into one of the recent updates. I have never seen it before. I need to find a setting to turn this off.

I run a portable USB type modem with my computer that I turn on and off when needed.
I'm running: ZoneAlarm Extreme Security under XP (SP3)

I would like to turn off this irritating alert box that appears after every startup. Is there a Setting to uncheck? Any suggestion?

Thank you in advance,
