This question I do not understand. *What* is "Remove and Add"?

I'm talking about the "Add or [not and] Remove Programs" control
panel item (ARP). You should not remove, then add, Python, but
instead, repair it.

Launch ARP. Seek Python (wait while this list is being populated).
Select Change, then "Repair Python 2.4.4".
