> The problem is that Python GUI (IDLE) doesn't run properly. 

I assume you found the stuff about enabling the firewall to allow comms 

There is a reference to the problem on the Python web site but the 
fix depends on your firewall.

Try disabling the firewall temporarily to prove that IDLE starts 
ok without it.
