1. I hope you downloaded GIMP from http://www.gimp.org/downloads/ .

2. What is your system: operating system, version, CPU, CPU architecture,
versions, etc.

3. Can you provide a screenshot of your screen when GIMP is running? You can use
http://imgur.com/ to share it online (or any other site that does not require
JavaScript to be enabled for its images to be viewed).

4. Did you try running GIMP in a new operating system user account?
