That kind of info will really help you to get more authorative responses from the list > > If I can dig out the critical bits in the error report, do you > think anybody here on GIMPusers could help me with it?

Otherwise you need to type something like c:\program files\gimp-2.6\bin\gimp.exe this will start gimp and show you what is happening while the program runs. messages will scroll by as you mentioned but the few lines before "segfault" or "gimp is exiting" should show you what caused the crash. As for gimps user related files thew should be found in something like c:\Documents and Settings\yourname\.gimp-2.6 You have pretty much exhausted my windows knowledge but writing back to the list w/ the results of this info may help someone else help you.
