If you don't think you need them, then make a note of the settings and then delete them from Zonealarm. Worst case is that something you use stops working and then you can just add them back in.

Remember why this functionality exists - so you can reach the outside world in an atypical manner or so the outside world can reach you whenever they want. If you don't think you need the ports open, you probably don't. Other devices like maybe x-box may want them for internet gaming so keep that in mind. After you close the ports, try the various things you do on your computer and around the house. You should be fine.
