Squid: http://www.squid-cache.org/
Time-prove software, runs on Linux and Windows. Somewhat tricky to set up, but free.

check the following list

in my company i have implemented web filter for 750+ using open-source squid with dansgaurdian and blacklist
http://www.squid-cache.org/
http://dansguardian.org/
http://urlblacklist.com/
i installed and configured internet gateway using squid proxy server (RHEL5), which retrieves the users who are allowed to connect to the internet from active directory group via samba server and winbind, the scenario is using NTLM for SSO, thats why we have to configured Kerberos, the gateway is protected with clamAV antivirus, blacklist and dansguardian for content filtering.

my recommendation, get squid and run it on a linux server

I switched in many environment ISA to squid, in my company I use squid.....
indeed squid is the best but keep in mind it requires times and skills to install, manage and configure it with other components. I used it in many complex environments with success but again you need  the skill in Linux and squid (open source packages)...
Just do it.....
