Scipy is definitely in site-packages*, but not in Add/Remove. I also 
downloaded it from IDLE prompt. Numpy is both in site-pkg and 
Add/Remove.    Numpy is 1.2.0.

* If I said otherwise, it may be because I'm in the midst of going from 
XP to Win7, and am using two machines very close together. Well, I think 
it's time to update per your instructions.
