I'm new at programming and have chosen to start with python, and so I
have installed python 2.6, and played around with it a little. 
However, a problem has occured: yesterday when i tried to run the
program - pythonwin editor 2.6.0 - a crash occured immediately upon
launch. All i do is start up the program, and while trying to open, the
program crashes, and a windows error window pops up, telling me that
'the program has encountered an error, and will now exit' - not telling
me anything useful about what kind of error has occured, or why. As
usual, the windows errorreport is of no use. And so I have little idea
of what causes the crash, but I do have a suspicion that the .dll
mfc90.dll might be a part of the problem, since it is mentioned in the
beginning of the errorreport.

Looking forward to hear from you.

What URL precisely did you download Python from? Where precisely did you
get pythonwin from?

i got it from this URL, which i believe is indeed not phoney:

it's their own homepage. 

would you happen to know why this happens? the problem occurs eventhough
i uninstall and reinstall the program. same error, only mentioning that
