    I am wondering what that is too?

    in fact both these show up in my netbarrier logs and I don't know what they refer to or why:

    because when I enter each one in the browser url address bar:
    You tried to visit, which is not loading.

    You tried to visit, which is not loading.

    What are those and what do they signify? why do they show up but they don't exist?

    This is apparently how OpenDNS works. Any non-existing domain is linked to loading, in case spell-checking didn't help, and any blocked adult site is linked with loading

    And yes, I also get occasionally alerts from my software firewall regarding port 445 and I would believe that if the computer tries to establish a file sharing connection with a non-existing host, it is redirected to, and this continues to use the original port, even for an internal IP address.

    what they signify (reasonable guess):
    Rather than a "non-existent" host, I suspect that's the result of having filtering enabled. When you request a page from a domain pegged to a 'blocked' category, your browser is redirected, first to an OpenDNS webserver bound to a subdomain named to match filtering category, then to which serves the resultant "blocked" webpage.

    "why do they show up but they don't exist?"
    the webserver domains handling category/block probably don't issue a response when you visit them 'directly' -- they only respond when referer=XYZ
