However, it did NOT fix my problems with Safari. Safari will not load the home page nor any other url's.
BTW: I tried Chatting with Support and the 1st chat window timed out before I got an answer. The 2nd chat attempt was never responded too.
I called and spoke with a support person this after, from Philippines. It was painful to try to get across my name & email to him, much less the problem. After a half an hr back & forth with him he said I would get an email with the resolution in 10mins. I still haven't received an email for AVG support
Winsock error 10054 is "Connection reset by peer", or "An existing connection was forcibly closed by the remote host". The error means exactly what it says - the remote host closed the connection unexpectedly. This happens when a connection is aborted, and there is no tcp disconnection handshake (fin, fin ack, ack) , but instead a rst (reset) flag is sent.
It seems that there definitely is software conflict between AVG Family Safety (or any other Parental Control software and anti-virus software) and Apples Safari browser because they are probably both using winsock and same network layer.
