I've just determined that the AVAST 2015 program has been sending out about 5000 DNS queries when I first turned on the PC and my OPENDNS was blocking all the requests that were for banned websites. It was the reports from OPENDNS that first alerted me to this potential problem.
AVAST had me thinking I had malware on my network, that my kids might have been trying to access banned sites, that someone was using my PC or wireless network without my permission. This made me think I had a serious breech of security on my network.
I was able to disable this by turning off all the features listed in the tools menu - I"m not sure which specific tools was the culprit.
I've put a ticket in with AVAST - but no response yet. This one drove me crazy.
