First off, what has happened here is no more catastrophic than a simple
file association issue. Uninstalling the Gimp is totally unnecessary
just to try to correct a problem which is not really a problem. In
Windows Explorer, you can simply click on "Tools" "Folder Options" and
then "File Types" to look for the file extensions that you wish to
re-associate with a different program.

Secondly, even if you do uninstall the Gimp, you will not lose any of
your images. Not even the ones you may have created with the Gimp. After
all, they are just images, not an integral part of the program software
itself. The uninstaller would not know of their existence. Also, they
will remain with the name they were given in the location they were

Hope this helps.
