There are over 5 possible reasons for this.

That is helpful to know. How did you install python? What installer,

If python starts and runs, which it did to display that message, then
there is no reason to reinstall completely. A repair might be needed if
a particular file is bad.

Since you did not say what did not work, I don't know what not to
suggest ;-). Anyway...
Have you added any files to the Python36 directory? If so, what.
Open a Command Prompt window. (Type 'com' in the Win 10 search bar
"Type here to search" and look under apps.) After the 'path>' prompt, enter
path> python -m idlelib
path> py -3 -m idlelib
If you get the same message and click OK, do you see any error messages?
A workaround, hopefully temporary, is to add the -n (no subprocess)
option for IDLE.

IDLE will execute you code in the same process with IDLE's. This
usually works but occasionally there can be a conflict.
