I am also using sygate personal firewall pro and I also often get the same message as you when I am loading and checking proxies and when browsing some websites.
This is what I found from its help file:
Enable anti-MAC spoofing
By default, this option is enabled on the Personal Firewall. Some hackers use MAC spoofing to attempt to hijack a communication session between two computers in order to hack one of the machines. MAC (media access control) addresses are hardware addresses that identify computers, servers, routers, etc. When Computer A wishes to communicate with Computer B, it may send an ARP (Address Resolution Protocol) packet to the computer.
The anti-MAC spoofing feature allows incoming and outgoing ARP traffic only if an ARP request was made to that specific host. It blocks all other unexpected ARP traffic and logs it in the security log.

Although they are a little out of date. The FAQ's should be able to answer most of your questions about antipoints.
