When first running pip built in python 3.4.3 on windows, it will notify you that you should upgrade to 6.1.1

The recommended command is 'pip install --upgrade pip'

However, if you run this command, it will uninstall pip as well as fail to upgrade pip. 

On the official site of pip, it gives the command on windows - 'python -m pip install -U pip', which runs perfectly.

This is actually a message that comes from a third party component, pip in this case. I've opened up with the pip project and suggest that further discussion/tracking happen there. It will be picked up by Python automatically when it gets fixed in pip and released and updated in Python.
