It could be malware.. try running malwarebytes (http://www.malwarebytes.org).

Try and isolate the process that is examining the file shares

It doesn't look like malware or a virus, your PC is just doing netbios name service broadcasts to resolve server names. Every second shouldn't be a problem for the network, if you are experiencing issues then there is something else wrong.
The screen shots only show the filtered broadcasts and not whether it is getting a reply - which it should do if the servers are on the same 172.17.114 network. If the servers are on a different network then WINS or DNS should be used - has something changed to affect this?
