It sounds like the registry entry for running Python files is messed up. 
Can you go to a command line and see what the command 'ftype Python.File' 
displays? (Assuming that command lines and ftype still work on Vista)

The output should be:
Python.File="C:\Python25\python.exe" "%1" %*

but if it only says:
Python.File="C:\Python25\python.exe" "%1"

then you would get the behaviour you observed (on any version of Windows, 
not just Vista).
