    Sounds like you recently changed it to 'allow once'. Yes, it's normal for everything in the control panel to bring up that alert. You'll also see it a couple times during boot, and when you eject or insert a CD.

    This actually got a little annoying for me.. Online Armor actually handles those without having to 'allow once' each time rundll32 is used.. just found that one out recently :)
