That check box will only turn on content filtering services for the persons PC they are logging in from( at least that is what Sonicwall has intended), so the default is no CFS if you are logged in to the UTM as admin.
I wonder if some how you are losing connection with the CFS server, there is another check box under the configure button pop up that ask if you want to allow all or block all if the server is unavailable for x secs.

You may also want to try just disabling and re-enabling CFS for your LAN and any other interfaces you may have CFS turned on for by going to Network -> Zones and clicking the configure button for each interface.

Another good thing to check is if your firmware is up to date. Under Systems -> Settings, you can back up your config and upload the newest firmware to your box. Sonicwall does a good job at updating issues so this is a good habit to get in to.

Thanks alot for you response but i already did that , i put the latest firmware but i am still suffering from the problem  , could it be due to some other reasons , like admin privilege ???
Well as default when you turn on CFS all connections are "trusted users" and "everyone" if you have yours setup to import LDAP or using user groups you may want to check if your CFS Policy assignment under your content filtering page is set to VIA User and Zone screens or VIA APP rules.

 It could be user privileges. If you go to Users -> Local groups you should be able to see what CFS policy is assigned to that group.
