Cleanup is trying to open an existing process.

ZoneAlarm is asking you whether to allow this behavior. Your computer is safe.
Details

ZoneAlarm protects your system from malicious opening of existing processes.

A process is a program that is being executed. Each process can request any amount of resources from Windows as long as they are available.

Malicious programs may open existing processes on your computer to load malicious programs and utilize an excessive amount of CPU time, memory, and other resources.

Due to the potential threat, only programs which have been given explicit permission to open existing processes on your system will be allowed to do so.
