This list is not the right place to ask usage questions like this, it
is meant for discussion of the Python documentation.  You may have
better luck asking on python-list or python-win32, both @python.org.

However, I would expect the most likely culprit to be either a
corrupted download or a local security policy of some sort.  I very
recently reinstalled all current versions of Python on a 64-bit
Windows 7 machine using the python.org installers with no issues.

Sorry I can't be of more help,
