Can websites you didn’t visit be in your history?

Is it possible for websites to be in your history that you did not visit (using windows internet explorer)? if so, how?

Unless your computer has been seriously infected with a very malicious bug, it’s impossible for un-visited sites to be in your browsing history list.

However it is possible you don’t know you’ve visited these sites as some web locations activate new sites called pop-ups, these are the screens that appear while you are surfing other sites. They have a relation called a pop under that sometimes appears when you shut down your other pages. It could be that some of these sites are appearing in your history.

Generally though it’s unlikely any site you haven’t visited to appear in your browser history, it is possible though someone else using your computer is visiting sites you aren’t aware of.
