Computer going crazy with HTTP Tidserv requests, blue screens, new hardware wizards, and I can't get into safe mode

My apologies in advance if I'm in the wrong place but I came across this site and am desperate for help. I'm not that great when it comes to tech issues but I've tried to do some of the things I've read here and I'm still in big trouble. Here's the story:

Yesterday I see a message from my Symantec saying that they found something. I've seen that before and usually run a scan with Symantec and then run Malwarebytes anti-malware and things get cleaned up. But not this time. Both programs found some stuff and cleaned it out but I'm having crazy problems now. First, if I try to turn my computer on normally, when it loads up windows i get a light blue screen and cursor and that's it. So I'm forced to reboot and get a screen offering me the option of safe mode, safe mode with network, log in under last stable time, and a few other options. I tried getting in to the safe mode but my username and password aren't accepted so I can't get in there. When I choose to log in using the last time things were stable I get in and all looks okay. For 2 seconds. Then I get found new hardware message popping up. I can't get rid of them unless I go into my system and disable or uninstall the hardware with question marks (there are like 20 of them listed, which weren't there before). And no matter what I do the new hardware message comes back the next time I reboot. I also get messages popping up from Symantec saying that I have an HTTP Tidserv Request or sometimes saying that traffic from some ISP has been blocked. Running Malwarebytes or Symantec finds nothing.

So bottom line is I can't log in to my computer normally (I actually have to boot up, I end up with the blue screen, I have to hold power to reboot, I get the screen from Windows about safe mode, I have to choose the option that lets me log in under settings that last worked, and then I'm finally in); I have these install hardware messages popping up; and I have this HTTP Tidserv thing. And none of my programs can find anything. And I can't log in to safe mode.

I'm desperate. Please, can someone help me? I just don't know what to do and being a technical novice is surely not helping.
