    I would check that history and see what its referring to, you may get some clues. I've mentioned virus' many times and you decline to address the issue.

    Because visiting a single website can actually generate web requests to many, many different web addresses, sometimes in the hundreds.
    Your browser is downloading ads, trackers, javascript files, images, text, fonts, and all kinds of stuff from different locations.
    It all goes in your history, and web cache if that's enabled.

    And it doesn't stop either, after the initial page load. The page can keep requesting stuff behind the scenes constantly as long as you
    navigate around on the webpage, and even just doing nothing with the webpage loaded.
