I installed PatchMyPC and it works well trought an authenticated proxy until I changed my proxy password. Now the application is unable to connect to internet trought the authenticated proxy it shows an error messages and closes. I tested an unathenticated proxy and it works as usually, so I think my old password it's cache somewhere.

The home updater doesn't currently support proxies.


But, if present or configured in the system, Home updater uses it.


You can try to connect manually, but to connect manually, you must have all the information about the proxy. Moreover, knowing how to connect is important because there is a certain sequence of actions. I recommend you watch the youtube video tutorial about it. I have never manually connected to a proxy server, as it is usually automated. I work online and need to collect a lot of data to do my job. I use https://soax.com/online-facebook-messenger-proxy to make it easier. It is a very useful tool that makes it easy to collect data.
