Fixing or replacing Python IDLE on Mac OS

I recently ran a .py file to IDLE that caused IDLE to crash (after running for some time). While it was running I tried many things including Force Quit etc. After the crash I tried opening IDLE and got the message that the port was missing? (something to that effect). After a day I tried IDLE and the the offending py file automatically restarted on IDLE. I closed IDLE and deleted the offending py file and IDLE (1.24, Python 2.54) finally appeared in it's regular form. I created a new simple py file and IDLE ran it correctly but I could not run another py file. I also noticed that the new py file also created a .pyc copy.

Hopefully this isn;t too confusing. Do I need to reinstall IDLE? Is there a simpler fix?
