I fairly sure that's the AVG update service, which wants internet connectivity - not available in safe mode - but that should not stop the AVG install (not sure about this as I've only run AVG in safe mode, never tried to install it there.) Try 'Safe Mode with Networking' to see if you can get past that stage.
Perhaps a manual update of AVG would help?
Manual Update site:http://free.grisoft.com/doc/24/lng/us/tpl/v5
Priority updates - These are virus definition updates. 2 files listed *.bin format
Recommended updates - These are program bug fixes. 2 files listed *.bin format
Optional updates - low priority presentation changes.
How to update:
Copy the .bin file to a folder or your desktop. Start AVG Control Centre. Click Update, at the bottom of the dialog window are the buttons 'Internet' and 'Folder'. Click 'Folder', a directory tree will open asking you to point to the folder where you put the .bin file. Once you click the correct folder AVG will find it and update itself.
If you do not have the option to choose the update source because the 'do not ask this question again' box had been ticked, you can reset this in the Control Centre by clicking 'View'>'Components'>'Update Manager. In the Update Manager in the 'Properties' tab untick the 'Do not ask for the update source' box.
