I started up IDLE today and the bottom of the window was off of the
screen. I could not find a way to resize it. I closed all apps and
rebooted. After rebooting, IDLE will not start. Below is the
Traceback:

Traceback (most recent call last):

Thanks for any assistance

Find your .idlerc directory and rename/move/delete it.

If you're on Windows, this should be located at C:\Documents and
Settings\<your username>\.idlerc

Otherwise (Linux/OSX/etc.) it should be located in your homedir.
