[R] Problem installing packages and weird R site behaviour

I tried to install a package using the menu option and was presented a list filled with NA's.
I then tried visiting the R site and each option on the side bar (eg. CRAN, Search,FAQ) sends me to the address attached below (NB: I left off the h in http).
The first problem seems to be related to the second. Is anyone else experiencing this behaviour and how do I restore normal behaviour?

Problem 1
>local({a <- CRAN.packages()

+ install.packages(select.list(a[,1],,TRUE), .libPaths()[1], available=a, dependencies=TRUE)})
trying URL `http://cran.r-project.org/bin/windows/contrib/2.0/PACKAGES' Content type `text/html' length unknown
opened URL
downloaded 953 bytes
