Jump to content outbound from explorer.exe

With no browser running [and no other application software initiated by me] as soon as I connect to the internet I start getting Malwarebytes website blocked notifications. I've added a few screen shots; these were from a 5 minute period when I actually went live as I'm not exactly sure whether this is a false positive or not and hence too concerned to leave the PC online.


All seem to have the same IP address with different DNS entries.


Two questions: 1. is this evidence of an infection?

                         2. what is explorer doing chasing this address over and over and over so I can't get any work done because I'm staring at Malwarebytes notifications?


I should add that scans are all clear and AVG and MW have up-to-date definitions. Oh, and I've read the FAQs and sticky posts and believe I've done all the scans as well.
