Sorry I can't help more, winders just ain't my gig
But if it were I would suggest 2 last things, kind of related to
If I remember right there may be more than 1 source of gimp for
windows, in the old days we had to install gtk separately from
gimp, the installer I have used recently took care of this for me,
but you might look at what is installed gtk wise. (should show up
in add remove programs.
Also if people knew where your gimp came from that might help also.
(you might also find some help on that site.)
Abiword is another program that uses gtk, you could try installing
that, if abiword works, give gimp one more try.
