[python-win32] Problems running Python 2.1 and ArcView 9.1

Hello all,

I'm hoping some of you may be able to help me since
I'm getting nowhere with ESRI tech support on this

I was trying to run very simple scripts in Python 2.1
(e.g., create a folder) but Python would crash every
time. Someone at ESRI suggested I add the line:


to one of my scripts and run it. It worked, except
that now I am unable to use any of the tools in
ArcToolbox that are scripts. If I try running one of
them, Pythonwin will open the script for that
particular tool and it hangs. Even if it finishes
running, no output is created.

Does anybody have a suggestion on how to fix this? I
have done a complete uninstall of both Python and
ArcView, deleted every sort of registry, but the
problem persists...
