I got this error when I tried to do and update on my System Mechanic version 6 Pro program. All other aspects of net connection work, just this particular error which states:

WSAENOTCONN (10057) Socket is not connected.

Berkeley description: A request to send or receive data was disallowed because the socket is not connected and (when sending on a datagram socket) no address was supplied.

WinSock description: Same as Berkeley, and then some. An application attempted an input/output network function call before establishing an association with a remote socket (i.e. before calling connect() or accept()). It also has a specific meaning for setsockopt().

Detailed description:

setsockopt(): WinSock generates this error if you try to set SO_KEEPALIVE but the connection has already been aborted (e.g. a TCP reset received from remote host).

Developer suggestions: Chances are, that if you encounter this error, your application ignored the failure of some previous function. Although some WinSock implementations might not issue other errors if a connection fails, so you can handle this error as you would others that indicate connection failure.

Good info but what would be a way to resolve it?
