I am unable to open idle. When I attempt it just ends without opening. I attempted to open it by using the command window, but got this error. ImportError: WSAStartup failed: network not ready. it occurred in socket.py. Anyone else have this problem? Is there a fix?

Try launching IDLE with the -n command line option. If that works, then you probably have a firewall that doesn't like the loopback socket that IDLE creates to run your code in a separate process and you should configure your firewall to play nicely with IDLE. How to do that depends on your firewall. If that doesn't work, then I've got no clue.
