Happended to me too. Idle is trying to get access to tcp/ip
services and can't find them on Windows. You have to start Idle
with an option to disable threading, or something. Don't know
what feature exactly, I'm not on Windows now, luckily.

In any case, you should open a shell Window, and start Idle from
the command line. That should tell you what the problem is.
