Officescan 10.5 Smart protection server web reputation

Hi All,
           I upgraded my officescan server from 10sp1 to 10.5 and I integrated a Smart Protection Standalone server.

I configured the web reputation service with a list of approved/blocked sites but I have a (maybe stupid) question.
I noticed that it doesn't accept wildcards (like http://*.megaupload.*) and so I have to use a new block rule selecting URL with Keyword.

My question is: what does it mean the flag "use regular expression"???
I did some tests but I can't find no difference with it checked or unchecked...

No help from any trend micro guide...

thank you in advance

a regular expression is a pattern describing a certain amount of text.

I'm really sorry, but I continue to not understand.

I attach 2 screenshot to explain my doubt.

As you can see I tryied to modify the same rule: one version without the flag "use regular expression" and the other one with the option checked.

In both the version of this rule the clients acts in the same way! No difference...
What that flag is intended for?

then just use w/o regular expression indicating the keyword you want to match

then you define if you approve or deny and save the rule... it has to work
if not check the logs...

Both helped me, but SSHarma give to me a better explanation in using regular expression.

Thank you both!
