If your IE is configured to use proxy server, try ppm after adding the following three environment variables under system variables(System Properties>Advanced tab>Environment variables).

name: http_proxy
value: your proxy server(e.g http://internet:8085)

name: http_proxy_user
value: your username(Windows login)

name: http_proxy_pass
value: password

I think I had given you this solution sometime back, for installation of some other module. Incase you have changed the Windows login password, change the environment variable accordingly.
