    DNS is used to resolve domain names to ip addresses.

    Open DNS is an alternative DNS provider (as opposed to defaulting to ISP - comcast, etc.). It is supposedly faster and exposes less to your isp. One extra feature OpenDNS has is that is logs and can effectively block requests to certain websites.

    To remove it, you would have to change your Network adapters dns servers back to your default isp dns servers. Chances are you don't know what they are though.

    Here is a link though:
