Since my daughter installed it, Partha, I don’t know which version it is.
And as I mentioned, I tried to uninstall it, both from the Control Panel and
also from the Gimp tree in the directory, and the uninstall process kept
crashing the computer.  That was the issue.  Fortunately, everything is
resolved now.  Thanks!

My version comes with an installer which you will not copy anything to the
Windows directory. Also, to uninstall, simply go to the control panel, and
