Default Is it Safe?

I am using Zone Alarm with Windows XP. Occasionally Zone Alarm pops up with the message: Do you want Generic Host Process for Win32 Services to accept connections from the Internet? Sometimes the message reads: Do you want Generic Host Process for Win32 Services to act as a server?

I have no idea what either of these messages mean. Is it safe for me to say yes and allow Generic Host Process for Win32 services to act as a server and accept connections from the internet?

Please help
