I'm having problems Blocking Sites where the WWW is not required in the URL. I have created the normal Destinations Sets and S&C Rules. For example, to block access to ICQ's website I add the Destiantion *.icq.com Now when users type www.icq.com or http://www.icq.com the Block works correctly. But if the Users type http://icq.com or just icq.com they are able to get to the site.

<snip> Computers can be specified by domain name or by a range of IP addresses. You can use an asterisk (*) as a wildcard when you specify the computer name. For example, to specify all computers in the microsoft.com domain, type the destination as *.microsoft.com. Note that the asterisk can appear only at the start of the domain name, and can be specified only once in the name. </snip>
Not really all that useful as a site like us.*.yahoo.com can't be blocked using the ISA. Need to specify each one.
