"i cannot activate it" is very little information, there's no way without you giving
more details to tell what could be wrong.

My results on a Windows 10 preview machine:
installed the python 3.4.3 msi from python.org, installed "for all users", default options:
Idle is on the start menu ("IDLE - python 3.4 gui - 32 bit") and starts without
problems. Python seems to work just fine.

I suggest downloading the msi installer again and running the installation again (or
chose 'repair' if prompted).
