Versions 2.7.7 and 2.7.8 (with both builds, 86 and 64 builds) have some strange things that is different from other versions:
1. The tk icon of the IDLE is not loaded. The icon loaded is as this one: Python27\Lib\idlelib\Icons\idle.ico
and it should be like the one found in Python27\Lib\idlelib\Icons\tk.gif

2. I cannot pin a shortcut to the program! This is not the case with other python versions.

Regarding the icon, I found that this is not an issue. In fact, this is the new icon starting from version 2.7.7 (The same goes for 3.4.2. Not sure of previous versions)

Regarding the pin to taskbar: After uninstalling Python 3.3 and installing Python 3.4.2, I can pin python 2.7.8 to the taskbar. I really have no idea why.

That is all.
