Windows Help Center behind a proxy

Discussion in 'Windows Vista Networking' started by jedimasteryoda, Nov 4, 2007.

  1. I am working on Windows Vista Business. To access the internet, I have to go
    through a proxy server that requires authentication. I have specified the
    required proxy settings in IE and whenever I run IE, it prompts me for
    username and password.

    On such a system, whenever I open Windows Help and Support Center, it cannot
    access online help and doesn't even prompt me for authentication. It can only
    show offline help. please suggest how to resolve this.....

    Note::: as a peculiar thing, on the same system, windows update works
    fine.....whenever i run it, it prompts me for proxy details and subsequently
    downloads stuff....
