I too seem to have experienced this same problem.  I am running Windows
Vista.  After choosing to shut down my computer and restart without
cleanly shutting down IDLE I got a "socket error" - socket
error:connection refused when I next tried to launch IDLE.  After
pressing OK I got another message: "IDLE's subprocess didn't make a
connection. Either IDLE can't start a subprocess or personal firewall
software is blocking the connection" 

After a search through the web I simply ran the python-6.2.3.msi file
again and chose to "repair" Python 2.6.3 - this has solved the problem.
 Hope this helps.
