Squid Guard problems

I have been trying to get Squid Guard set up with Squid for a while now on my virtual machine running Ubuntu Server 7.04. Every time i turn on SquidGuard with Squid I am unable to get to any site, plus the categories that i have blocked with the block.html file still come up but only for those sites. when i try to get to an un-blocked site, it says its unable to determine the address. any suggestions? thanks.
