Sorry to bother again...

Since http://www.123macmini.com/forums/viewtopic.php?t=30822
I decided, at least for the moment, to give up on OpenDNS. Part of that is deleting the OpenDNS (dynamic IP address) updater that OpenDNS suggested to download and install.
With everything else related to OpenDNS removed, I think, this is the last thing. However, when trying to move it to Trash it says it's still open (confirmed in Activity Monitor), but how/why is that?
Is there any way of deleting it even when it says it's open or how can I force it to quit?

Thanks again for any advice!

Found it, sorry - overlooked the Quit process option in Activity Monitor...

OpenDNS is a DNS provider and yet they break the RFC by not returning NXDOMAIN for invalid URLs. I can see you don't mind, but even ICANN disagree with you saying they "strongly discourages the use of DNS redirection" and it is also against EU data protection rules. Reputable is not what I would call them at all. They are in a grey area - but a lot closer to black than white.
