Just out of curiosity since you have provided no real information about
what you have and have not done.....
1. Did you bother taking a look at the task manager to see if there is
a gimp process already running that was left over from the installer?
2. Have you looked at the Event Viewer and the application error logs?
If they aren't turned on turn on logging for that.
I haven't used windows for several years but that's where I would start.
