But I am having the most extreme problems with simply typing "pip" into my command prompt and then getting back the normal information on pip! I have repeatedly downloaded [to my Desktop] that get-pip.py file then  ran it. I even downloaded that easy-install.py and ran that but to no success! I have all of the proper env. variables set.
