Wayne, I sympathize with your problems, but they are Windows problems, not 
Python problems, and have absolutely nothing to do with learning to program 
Python. You are spamming this mailing list with off-topic questions about 
fixing your Windows system. This list is about learning Python programming, 
not "we'll fix any problem that has some vague connection to Python, no matter 
how slight". Have you tried asking for help on Windows-related forums or 
mailing lists?

It has been many years since I've used Windows regularly, but I can tell you 
this: you don't do yourself any favours by installing and uninstalling 
programs under Windows. I know it is less than helpful, but my advice is 
*never* install any program you aren't sure you will want to keep, because 
uninstalling always leaves traces of crud behind, eventually leading to 
exactly the sorts of problems you are experiencing.
