Dear Pete,

Thanks, it works now!

I did as you suggested: 

--internet flag to the target line (right click, properties) e.g.
"C:\Program Files\R\R-2.8.1\bin\Rgui.exe" --internet2 

Strangely enough, I can now easly download packages but I still get these


Warning message:
In open.connection(con, "r") :
  cannot open: HTTP status was '407 Proxy Authentication Required'

> utils:::menuInstallPkgs()
Warning: unable to access index for repository

..but eventually it does install what I want...any clue?
