Please show us the Squid configuration file (omitting comments and blank lines) 
- that will show us what you've asked Squid to do.

Show us what turns up in your Squid access log and your Squidguard blocking 
log (sorry, I'm not familiar with what this might properly be called, but I 
assume Squidguard has a log file showing which requests it has blocked) when 
such a request gets made.

Please try to:

a) restrict what you show us to only the user / IP making the request (no need 
to include other users' requests going through Squid at the same time)

b) include *everything* relating to that user, even if you think something 
might not be relevant

c) copy and paste the text from the log files, don't send a screenshot (osrry 
if that's obvious, but you might be surprised what some people do)

That will give us some idea of what's working and what isn't.
