I fixed all my windows bugs:

0) Backup your data.
1)  Boot from rescue disk, no CD support (or don't worry for win95, that had 
to be made manually).
2) Utilize the Microsoft built, Microsoft bug squashing tool: fdisk
3) In fdisk you'll likely see these bugs, they're called "partitions."  You 
want to delete them.
4) Note that some bugs are harder -- namely "extended partitions."  In those 
you'll have to first squash the "logical drive" bugs, then you can delete the 
"extended partition" bugs.
5) Save changes and exit.  Congratulations!  Your system is now bug free!
6) Insert Red Hat 7.3 (NOT 8.0 -- IT HAS THE GNOME BUG!) disk one, to finish 
the bug proofing your windows machine.  Proceed with screens, but chose 
custom (cause this is a bug squashing thing), and both install and make 
default the KDE desktop.  (That's the special bug protection.  Though it too, 
has some bugs ((sorry)), though not as badly as the rest.)
7) This works for NT and XP as well.  For persistant bugs, like the 
administrative rights bug, in NT or XP, just boot from the Red Hat 7.3 disk 
1, and when it offers "disk druid," use it to delete the windows partition 
bugs, as mentioned in step 3.
8) Bug squashing is fun, and you can do it at home and work.
9) Oh, squash at your own risk.

You'll find that this fixes not only the windows gimp bugs, but your 
vulnerability to email attacks, all kinds of viruses, the blue screens of 
employment bug, and the dreaded "exposure to legal liabilities for pirated 
software/BSA where coming to Fed. you away" bug.  (YIKES!)

All in all, I'd say "QUITE A FIX!"  Glad to help.
