But yeah, I'll see what I can do, 'cause way earlier I cleared a bunch of
programs off of my computer to see if it'd help with Gimp... . Then again I
might just be getting my laptop fixed in time for Christmas instead. Thank
goodness for Picmonkey, though. I can wait with Gimp xD
Though, I just re-installed Gimp 2.8 (which I've been using for the past few
months); per se, it loads fine/fast the first time, but when I have to close
it/load it again it loads slower and gives me that C++ Error and stuff, so. MEH.
