It then started to work the next time I logged in, but my Norton Anti-Virus kept telling me that I was being attacked, from something originating in "firefox.exe", and that it had been blocked from doing so. I then uninstalled Firefox and installed Google Chrome, but Norton kept telling me I was being attacked. The difference is that this time I was being attacked by "svchost.exe". I have attached a picture of the message Norton sent me.
So now whenever I log on, I keep getting these same messages from Norton, and every so often, when I go on the internet, Norton tells me that whatever browser I am using at the time, its .exe file is also attacking my computer.
I also got an error report type thing that told me what happened during the last crash:
Problem Event Name: BlueScreen
OS Version: 6.1.7600.2.0.0.768.3
Locale ID: 4105
Additional information about the problem:
OS Version: 6_1_7600
Service Pack: 0_0

Anyway, any help is appreciated! I'd love to get this problem sorted out ASAP because I'm a University student with midterms and homework coming up.... what a great time for this to happen!
EDIT: [Regarding the picture I posted]
I have gotten other notifications recently from Norton saying that I was attacked by svchost.exe. The notifications change each time, though, as each time the "Attacking Computer" changes. I will keep an updated list of the computers that attack mine through svchost.exe below. I have not been recording the addresses of the computers yet, but I will now start.
-cap01tchaa.com, IP Address: (126.96.36.199, 443)
-u101mnay2k.com, IP Address: (188.8.131.52, 443)
-kur1k0nona.com, IP Address: (184.108.40.206, 443)
-lo4undreyk.com, IP Address: (220.127.116.11, 443)
-sh01cilewk.com, IP Address: (18.104.22.168, 443)
NOTE: I was only able to upload 4/5 pics that show the different attackers
EDIT 2: PROBLEM SOLVED!
After reading what the threat was (HTTPS Tidserv Request 2), I Googled it and found the solution to my problem. If anyone else has this problem, here is a link to the remover I used:
