    Random websites in DNS cache..?

    Hey all, first of all - thanks for taking a look at my post.

    So I was having problems with a twitch stream and the error came up about "DNS probe failed" on chrome, looking this up revealed I needed to clean history on my chrome + clear out the dns cache with ipconfig /flushdns in CMD. I did both of these.

    It now works fine, but I decided to do ipconfig /displaydns and I found a ton of random websites I've never heard of..and I find it to be alarming so if anyone could explain what is happening that would be great. I already know how to save my ipconfig /displaydns file so I have uploaded it in a .txt file.

    If anyone can provide information on if these are all normal and what the DNS cache is that would be great!

    Thank you!

    EDIT: solved myself.
