Pfsense / untangle / Endian Content Filtering

Hey all, new here but I have been reading as much as I can and playing with different packages trying to find the best solution for my needs.
Basically all I am looking for is a LIGHTWEIGHT basic router that can filter content (porn etc) and AV would be great. I have installed pfsense and squid/squidguard however it's missing a few features and functions that are more than likely user error.
1:) I can get squid/squidguard working in transparent mode however after a reboot the service says its started but it wont filter until I either hit apply under the squidguard or restart the service.
2:) ClamAV is the same issue in transparent mode
3.) Automatic updates on sites?
Is there a different solution to filter content other than using squid/squidguard? I have seen ip_blacklist but does that auto update? Is there more a dynamic solution?
I really really really would love to use pfsense due to the lightweight nature of it.
any help would be awesome!

Depending on the details of your requirements, pfSense for the router/firewall and OpenDNS (http://www.opendns.com) might be satisfactory for the content filtering. For this combination you would configure OpenDNS as your name servers, then a name to IP address for a site hosting "unsuitable" content would return the IP address of an OpenDNS server that displays a message that access to the site is blocked and the category for which it is blocked.
