comment WPAD working for everything except Windows Update
HTTPS is working fine in IE. Also, when watching the web server and proxy logs you can see Windows ask for an get the PAC file (return code 200 OK), then it never even tries to connect to the proxy server, so it seems that it is not parsing the PAC file for some reason. By contrast you can watch IE using the PAC file and see it get the PAC File form the web server, and then instantly you see the traffic in the proxy logs.

Update - Skype also has problems with our PAC/WPAD file, but IE, chrome, FireFox & Safari are all working fine with it.

comment Deleting a tag from lots of images at once in Aperture?
Fantastic! Works like a charm! FAR from what I'd call intuitive - but hey, it works! Thanks again, and thanks for your kind words about the NosillaCast. Rest assured, myself and Allison have more fun making it than anyone could possibly have listening to it :)

comment On a Mac, how are connections (possibly by spyware) made to outside internet addresses during initial startup?
TT - I don't actually think you have a problem here. The apps you list are supposed to listen on the network, that's how they work. The fact that you have loads of custom hosts entries is making the output of lsof -i look suspicious, but by the sounds of it everything is normal. I don't believe you CAN find any OS config files for this, because I don't think any problem actually exists. If you're still worried post up the output of lsof -i -n and we can have a look.
