I've just tried installing python 2.3.5 straight (rather than active
python) from python.org and I get the same error on running from scipy
Please, if anyone has any thoughts (or recommendations for how the heck
you get scipy and python to run on windows, easily!) I would love to
hear from you

Thanks - now sorted with python 2.3
However, a further problem... When I run "from scipy import *"
activepython crashes with the result 'the instruction "0x6d3caed9"
referenced memory at "0x00000030". The memory could not be "read".'
This is indeed a weird one. I hope it's a software rather than hardware
(bad memory) problem.
Any further thoughts would be appreciated.

As the download page notes, the Windows binaries are only for Python
2.3.x and 2.2.x at this time. Extension modules are not compatible
across minor releases ("minor" as in major.minor.micro).
