I'm assuming that you are installing the 2.6.6 version of GIMP (I've
seen a handful of problems/reports with that version on Windows but I
think mainly on Vista).
If that is the case, perhaps you could try going back one version.
Here is the page that lists all available windows installers:
And the GIMP+GTK 2.6.5 installer is here:
Or, if you want to try again with getting 2.6.6 installed, look in
Add/Remove programs and remove GTK and GIMP. Then, rename your GIMP
directory (I'm not on Windows, but I think it's in Documents &
Settings\.gimp) to something like ".gimp_OLD". Then try installing
2.6.6 again - the GIMP+GTK package:
Oh - and I'm also assuming that you are _not_ using Windows XP
Professional x64 Edition - you need the 'x64' version of the installer
instead if you are.
Best of luck,
