I had the same problem with another version of python on Windows 7.

We are using python 2.4.2 for production and it is installed in D:\Tools\Python. For experimentation purpose, I installed Python 2.7 in the usual location. It broke a few things and I uninstalled both python, and reinstalled only 2.4.2.

After that, using python 2.4.2, I got the problem described by this issue. None of my colleagues (who did not install Python 2.7) had the issue. 

The registry entry HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT\py_auto_file\shell\open\command was reading: D:\Tools\Python\python.exe "%1"

It was missing %*. I added it and my issue went away.
