Infected Web Resource Detected (Accessed by: svchost.exe)

For the past few days, I have been trying to do everything to stop this popup. Randomly, Bitdefender will give me a notification:

-----------------------------------------------------------------------

Infected Web Resouces Detected

Feature: Online Threat Prevention

We blocked this dangerous page for your protection:

https:///

Accessed by: svchost.exe

Dangerous pages attempt to install software that can harm the device, gather personal information or operate without your consent.

-----------------------------------------------------------------------

I am mostly confused because there is no website URL and there are 3 forward dashes in front of "https:"

This happens sometimes 1 time, sometimes 8 times in a row. I have tried everything from scans every day to constantly deleting temp files etc. I even had a bluescreen yesterday.

Maybe this problem is very easy, but can anyone please tell me the answer? Thank you very much.
