What OS? Are you using the standard interpreter? Are you using IDLE,
bpython, etc? What key combination are you using?

My instinctive guess is that you are trying to Ctrl-C to copy something
in the interpreter, which actually just raises a KeyboardInterrupt
exception. However your additional symptoms seem to indicate otherwise.

A more verbose description is needed.
