And, yeah - that stuff's basically gone away since I've re-installed it again, but now it says it

Is your Windows set to use 16-bit colour mode? There's a known problem with
GTK+ if that's the case - change Windows to 32-bit colours.

How do you do that? I mean, do I go to control panel? I really don't know what 
the problem is, but if it helps I use Windows Vista/desktop.

Yes; from Windows Vista Control Panel:
- from default view: "Adjust screen resolution" (under the "Appearance and Personalization" section) or
- from classic view: "Personalization" then "Display Settings"

Either will bring up the "Display Settings" where you can set the colour depth from the drop-down under "Colors". If you have multiple monitors, you might need to set it separately for each one.

After click "Apply" or "OK" to apply changes, you'll need to click "Yes" before the timer expired when prompted for whether to keep the new settings. If that seems a bit odd, there is a sensible reason - changing display settings incorrectly can prevent anything from being displayed at all, making it difficult to change them back, so if the screen does go blank or scrambled you just need to wait 15 seconds for the timer to expire and it should go back to how it was before.
