Astromenda Random appearance

So yesterday, i came upon my desktop with a tab open to “http://www.msftconnecttest.com/cgi-bin/ipdiags.ha” with a 404 error. I instantly thought this was malware, so I did some searching but found that the most common explanation was that it was a glitch with ATT routers, and that that domain msftconnecttest is from microsoft. I was still worried and I continued to look for traces of malware on my computer. In my chrome settings, under appearance and show home button, there is an option for “enter custom web address.” entered there was a link to astromenda, which I know is malware 100%. How in the world did that get there, and are the 2 events related to each other? I ran HitMan pro scans and came up with nothing on my computer.
