New submission from Ilan <idjivre at yahoo.com>:


I am new to programming... I installed Python a couple days ago with no
problems. I used it quite a bit since I'm going through loads of tutorials. 
All of a sudden, it shut off, closed and will no longer open. This
problem seems to be common, but none of the suggestions work.

I uninstalled it and re-installed it to no avail. The command line works
