i think you can change that behaviour by setting something in that
windows manager thing -- i can't remember the name of it now. Display
Manager? it has been a while since i used windows, but they set it up
so that you can tell it which application to use to open different kinds
as far as removing it goes -- the gimp i use only knows where the images
it has touched are on my desktop. it scans only its own resources on
start up and does not attach itself to any of your images. you can
remove it cleanly and quickly that way.
i am curious, during the instalation process, did you agree to have gimp
manage all of your images? your problems are due to your initial
conversation with the installer i think and not with gimp itself.
i am sorry it was not a nicer experience for you.
