The issue is with the watchguard settings...

 "REQUEST DENIED BY WATCHGUARD HTTP PROXY. Reason: service unavailable helper=Regular Webblocker.1' details = 'Webblocker not available'
Method:GET
Host: www.yahoo.com
Path:/

I have looked on
Edit Policy Propieties....
 Policy properties Proxy action conf
I have tried other groups and they access internet..

I appreciate your help. :)

Under Webblocker; go to Advanced tab; under Server Timeout; I think you have set the option to:
Deny access to the web site
You can either change the action to Allow; or go to Servers tab and ensure that the IP listed for server has webblocker database installed.

For more information on webblocker look at links below:
