Thanks for your comments.

I also expect the problem is the interation of Python with Windows, but
whether they fault lies by Python or Windows I cannot say.

I can say that the problem seems to come and go away.  Last night it did not
work. This morning it did. A few minutes ago it did.  Now it does not.

 I have to my knowledge a standard installation.  Checking Google, which is
where I started in looking for a solution, shows that the error message has
occured for other people as well.

Again any suggestions are appreciated.
