    New user to OpenDNS; It blocks access to www.bing.com but does not give a category.

    Could be that you are using someone else's settings. Do you have a network configured in your OpenDNS dashboard, and is your IP address in sync there?
    At what page are you landing, when you are blocked from bing.com?
    Post the URL here.

    See http://domain.opendns.com/bing.com

    You have visual search engines blocked in your account. You can either unblock that category or add bing.com to your Always Allow list on the Settings page in your Dashboard.

    Arrgh! I hate people intentionally blocking stuff and then complaining about it being blocked! :devil:
    Being a new user is far no excuse for this.

    actually the block page should be coming up and saying it was blocked as Visual Search engines for the user as well..
    I think part of the domain category list is broken a bit as well though..

    as the only 1's it has checked for the network here at the office are adware, drugs,parked domains and Phishing.. yet adult sites are bringing up blocked page(not that I really mind, it's just that they seem to be on but the category list doesn't show them as on)..I have flushed the cache on the Microsoft DNS server and my computer before testing this and still comes up with blocks for nudity/porn on some test sites.....
    semi related to topic...
