It is possible that the python.org installer didn't overwrite the
"python24.dll" in the system directory (C:\WINDOWS\system32). Try doing
this:

- manually delete C:\WINDOWS\system32\python24.dll
- run the "repair" functionality of the python.org installer (you can
  either do this from  "Start | Settings | Control Panel | Add/Remove
  Programs" or by just running the .msi file again

Then try running python again.
