I'm not sure but I suspect if you terminate GIMP, take a copy of Users\<user
name>\.gimp-2.8 (just in case things go wrong) and then delete the contents of
that folder. Then when you restart GIMP (hopefully) it should recreate the
contents of .gimp-2.8 using the default settings. If it all goes wrong termiate
GIMP and restore the original contents of the folder.

Note that you would have to transfer and scripts, plug-ins, brushes etc that you
had installed from the back-up folder to the newly created folder (when GIMP
isn't running)
