If your firewall drops the packages (ZA does this when internet security level set to "high") you don't have to worry about those warnings, if you see many times the same IP, you could contact the IP adress owner. For the IP you mentioned 18.104.22.168 :

Perhaps this is your own ISP ?
And like said before by iNViCTuS the destination is in the multicast / netcast adress range. NET-MCAST-NET, so it is not traffic targeted at your box only. ;)
It could be some router problem by an ISP or ZA acting to sensitive. ;)
Some ISP's also perform a check on their networks (like a ping) everytime you log in or they could be doing this at certain or at random times.
I believe this info was alos provided in the above posts, but this is a sort of summary of the possibilities and solutions mentioned above. I hope this helped ;)
You better run Squall 75 it's a "Hacker Attack" they are coming to ping your computer! I would not even worry about it! What I would worry about is getting a different FIREWALL because Zonealarm (swiss-cheese) is not cutting it! Zonealarm it's self is a spy program. try to delete it you'll see what I mean
What would u suggest i run for a firewall "I am a cracker". FYI i am using NetZero(I know, I Know) but i am a 16 year old w/little money!
Try sygate firewall, they have a free version.
