Dear Sir, Madame,

I am having trouble starting up IDLE.

I have found threads with similar stories, however I haven't managed to solve mine.


I have installed both python 2.7 and python 3 on windows 7
both IDLEs used to work
tried running program in command bar and still nothing
tried making exception from anti-virus computer. ( i am using AVG)
no errors come up, program just doesn't start.

Your help would be greatly appreciated.

Kind regards,
