There was an earlier post with the answer to your question.  In your original 
post you said you did the following:


>>> python hello.py

SyntaxError: invalid syntax
>>>

The ">>>" shows me that you are _in_ the Python interpreter.  That  means you 
don't need to try to run it again (in fact, as you discovered, you can't).  
Instead, at the DOS/Windows command line, type

c:\>python hello.py

be sure you are in the same directory as hello.py
