Problem with IDLE on windows XP

I am trying to learn Python and I installed version 2.6 both at home and at work.  At home, on
Vista, everything works fine.  At work, on XP, IDLE would not run.  I uninstalled/reinstalled
and got the same thing.  My cursor changes to the wait symbol for a few seconds, then goes
back to normal and ….nothing.  The Task Manager shows nothing.  I uninstalled again,
made sure all the files were deleted from the disk, used regedit to delte every registry entry
that had python in it and tried version 3.0.

Geuss, what?  I still can’t run IDLE on XP?  Is this a common problem?  Or am I unique?

Thanks,
George
