I did try the other ways and the above trial shows some progress:
> utils:::menuInstallPkgs()

I also tried
"C:\Program Files\R\R-2.6.2\bin\Rgui.exe" http_proxy=myproxy.mycompany.com http_port=8080

but it gives the same resuat as the very frist solution ("malformed").

What about the firewall settings mentoined in the FAQ?
