My guess is this is something from my ISP more than something from the Linux Mint install but . . . is the range which needs to be blocked on ports 80,139,443 and 445.
I'm noting this because during the early stages of a new Linux Mint 18.2 Mate setup there was an endless stream of hits on the 139 and 445 ports
It's amazing how obnoxious these weasels can be and it would be good if someone closed them down as they attempt to act as man in the middle search when someone places anything in some form of search process which is not recognized or controlled by a normal process. In some case the whois which comes with the gnome-nettools package has even been affected and searchguide should in no way be affecting that program.
Just a heads up if you want to dump them,
http 80/tcp www # WorldWideWeb HTTP
netbios-ssn 139/tcp # NETBIOS session service
microsoft-ds 445/tcp # Microsoft Naked CIFS
https 443/tcp # http protocol over TLS/SSL
