If I de-install McAfee the Windows 7 Search works fine. So, this is evidently a problem with the McAfee product.

Did you have a chance to look into the access.log and look if one of your requests was blocked? A status code of "403" would be an indicator that something was blocked, "500" would probably tell something else went wrong. Maybe you can review and/or share some lines of the log showing the issue.
I am sorry Maximusar, but I think you are seeing a different problem. Cestrada is facing issues with a McAfee product placed into the network when accessing search engines on the Internet. The issue you describe seems to occur for Windows PC with a local (endpoint) McAfee installation and the Windows Desktop search.
Since the issue you mention seems to have a bigger impace, please make sure you have an SR filed with our support departments to get this issue resolved asap. In case you would like to rely on the community, please move your questions to the community for endpoint products - unfortunately the people within the Web Gateway community won´t be able to assist you with your problem.
I dont see anything in the logs pertaining to any blocks but as I mentioned if I remove the mcafee from the equation it works fine.
When you stated " Web Gateway blocks them for whatever reason - you won´t be able to see a block page that tells you something was blocked"--what exactly does this mean to resolve this issue??
I have seen the dogpile.com issue, it has to do with the "X-Forwarded-For" header being added by the Web Gateway. This is a standard proxy header, but it appears that the dogpile servers do not like it.
To resolve it, simply remove the X-Forwarded-For header from outbound requests.
See attached ruleset which demonstrates how to perform this.
Modify Headers.xml 2.3 K
I don’t particularly like the idea to remove X Forwarding. Is there a way to modify this XML to only remove for this search engine only---- somewhat of a whitelist for these problems.
Well removing the X-Forwarded-For header isnt a big deal, it's really only used by proxies.
There is no need to modify the XML file, you can import it into the Web Gateway and modify it as you want. Like to only remove the header if the URL.Host matches *.dogpile.com for example..
