[WEB SECURITY] Looking For Some Proxy Advice

Does anyone know of a free HTTP proxy that can be easily installed on a
desktop and has the following capabilities?

1.  Ability to configure an outgoing proxy server.
2.  Support for an outgoing proxy server that requires NTML authentication.
3.  Ability to define a "proxy bypass list" so that the outgoing proxy
server is not used for specific IP addresses or hostnames.
4.  Ability to point a web application scanner at this proxy and run a scan
through the proxy without the proxy bogging down and crashing.

Paros supports items 1, 2, and 3 above but doesn't seem to be designed to
route a large number of requests through it since it's more of a manual
testing tool and is trying to store all the HTTP requests/responses.  In
this case I'm not really interested in storing or viewing the HTTP
requests/responses, just need a way to intelligently route requests to
certain hostnames through an outgoing proxy server and bypass the outgoing
proxy server for other hostnames.
