Windows 7: Windows Update through local Proxy server?

Windows Update through local Proxy server?

I have six Windows7 Pro machines. They will not auto download Windows updates because of the proxy. If I click on "Check for Updates" then a small window pops up for proxy credentials. When I put in my credentials, the updates download and install normally. So I am having to do this manually on each computer each week. Is there a way that I can make Windows Update save my proxy credentials so that it can run automatically?
