there is a third way

Click on Start, how you will do to make the programs list pop out, close at the 
bottom, at left you will see "run"

there type the path for gimp exe (to avoid typo you can RIGHT click on 
gimp.exe, chose "propriety" and copy the path

that should look as C:\Program Files\GIMP 2.6\bin\gimp.2.6 exe 
then click ok or press enter

also mine..anyway maybe start gimp from "Run" adding "verbose will help
something as 
C:\Program Files\GIMP 2.6\bin\gimp.2.6 exe -verbose
(but maybe you HD is not called C)

Sure..there you may see a lot of empty folders as "script" "plugin" "brush",etc
There you are supposed to add your extra, as third party plugins,scripts,brush
In case of upgrade they will preserved (but instead,if placed in the 
programfiles folders,will be all deleted by upgrades)
