Did you try to completely remove Python and then do a fresh install?  Whenever I
try to do upgrades or additions I always have problems, so I like to just wipe
everything out and install from scratch.

Another thing you can try is (if you are on Windows) the Python (x,y) installer
at http://www.pythonxy.com/download.php

I've only been using it for a couple days, but it lets you put a check mark next
to the packages you want at install time and it handles everything for you, so
you don't have to worry about missing something or making a configuration error.
