This is more of a Windows issue, but I'll give it a go:

I would try opening the command prompt (type cmd in the start menu) and
typing the following at the prompt:

c:\Python27\python.exe c:\Python27\lib\idlelib\idle.pyw

If you installed Python somewhere else, replace Python27 with the directory
you installed it to.

Copy and paste the output of that command - you might need to click on the
icon in the top left of the window and there's an edit option that should
help you out.
