It looks like your problem is something wrong with MS Vista more
than with the GIMP.  I made a remark to the effect that the "right"
way to fix that is to install "an operating system that works" and
Ubuntu is an example of that.  The Cinnamon version of Mint is more
so, lately.  Both are free to download and install.

Reinstalling the previous version of the GIMP really should have
worked, and since it did not, this tends to rule out a bug in the
newer version as the source of the problem.  This looks like the
operating system, not the GIMP that's causing the problem.

There are too many tings that could be going wrong, for us to make
any more useful suggestions about how to get the GIMP running on
your system.

There is no reason to believe that the next version of the GIMP will
work for you, until the computer itself has been repaired.

Fixes that involve installing an operating system are normal for
some of us, but if you don't have the experience to do that it's not
a practical answer.  Since you seem to really need an image editor,
the best thing I can suggest at this point is to start looking for
an honest repair shop.
