Today I began to have a problem with my internet connection. I remember installing an update for Norton Family before it began to appear. I can use the Internet for 2-5 minutes before it suddenly rejects all my requests and gives a message along the following lines: "Can't connect to the server." Apparently I can only work with Google, but that's useless because I cannot access any of the sites that any search results provide. Firefox also stops working at the same time this problem appears. Google Chrome does work after that but I still cannot access any of the websites.

I am in the 'Safe Mode with Networking' mode right now, and there is no problem with the internet whatsoever. I've posted this message in that mode as well.

Does anyone have any suggestions? This has practically rendered me incapable of using the Internet. :(

This sounds more like a virus or malware to me. Maybe something that has configured your host file or redirects everything.
