Ask your system administrator to open the domain you are trying to connect to. It is blocked. And if you are in a corporate network, then I would not try to play with the IT policies.
No one would help you here to get past your proxy until it is clear that what you are trying to do is not illegal. Give more information where you are accessing internet and who is managing the proxy. Is it your company? If it is, sorry no help here.

i believe my question was not really that clear..sorry for that,
anyway, i was the one who configured the proxy server..the antivirus update problem has been solved but i'm still having problems with the yahoo messenger upgrade or new installation..and oftentimes, we just get kicked out in the middle of the conversation, and YM asks us to re-login..we also cannot attach files in YM unlike when we're not behind the proxy..

here's my config:

acl mynet src

acl YIM_ports port 5000-5100
acl YIM_domains dstdomain
acl YIM_hosts dstdomain
acl YIM_methods method CONNECT
http_access allow YIM_methods YIM_ports YIM_hosts
http_access allow YIM_methods YIM_ports YIM_domains

acl games url_regex "/etc/squid/game-sites.squid"
acl bad_siteswords url_regex "/etc/squid/bad-words.squid"

http_access deny bad_siteswords
http_access deny games

deny_info URL_ERROR games
deny_info URL_ERROR bad_siteswords
http_access allow mynet

any help is greatly appreciated!
thanks in adv...
