So let's start playing bug report:  Which version of Windows?  By what means
did you attempt to start IDLE?  What does "refuses to start" mean (error
msg, system freeze, hourglass that never goes away, pops up & vanishes,
nothing visible happens at all, ...)?  Does Tkinter._test() work from a
DOS-box Python?  Do you have magical Tcl/Tk envars set for your own
development work?  Stuff like that.
