Hi Evan, obviously it's not GIMP that caused the trouble, but windows. When creating a new user account worked but not setting up the GIMP-directory anew there got somethng wrong in the guts of windows. GIMP doesn't store user data at another place. I don't know where windows stores all configuration information for user directories. I would recommend you to migrate all user-data to the new directory or to an exchange folder and to work on the new account. If you got some time you can try to debug the old account.
As a hint, search for files which were altered shortly before or after you killed GIMP in the task manager. Thank you for the gold star. ;) Hope you are lucky Bernd evan neumann schrieb: > Bernd gets a gold star! > > Creating a new User Account worked.
