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 :angry:
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.
