When my PC booted up this morning, I received a ZoneAlarm Security Alert Suspicious Behavior: Java™ Platform SE binary is trying to launch C:\PROGRAM FILES\Java\JRE1.6.0_05\bin\java.exe. Is this something that I should allow as a legitimate update to Java or is it something that I should deny?

Welcome to GTG.

You can probably allow it access. Did you just install it recently or had a recent update for Java? If you want, you can disable it from startup. Go to Start->Run and type in msconfig and hit OK. Then go to the Startup tab and disable that Java startup entry.
