Squid 3 transparent proxy caching question

Hello. I'm new to Squid, and I've been trying to set up a transparent Squid proxy that caches virtually everything (i.e. webpages, images, text, as well as Windows Updates). The proxy *sort of* works. I can connect to the net and if I download a file through the browser, it does get cached, but most sites are still giving me a TCP_MISS/200 error in access.log.

My question is how do I set up squid to cache essentially "everything"? I know I can't actually cache everything, but I would like it to cache as much as possible, including everything listed above, as well as .exe's, .zip's, etc.).

Here's a link to my squid.conf and access.log files:

You'll probably need to download the access.log since it's so large.

Thanks in advance,

Well, upon further investigation, it seems that I can specify which sites get cached with refresh_pattern. Is there any way to allow caching for essentially all content? I'm still getting mainly TCP_MISS/200 errors.
