The problems is one of file associations and nothing to do with codecs. The
GIMP installer should (allow you to) set the file extensions for you. If it
hasn't done this, you can right click an image, select "Open With", select
the program that will be used to open the file (in this case GIMP), then
click the checkbox to say "always use this program". All image files with
extensions matching the type of the image you selected will appear with the
GIMP icon. Repeat the above for other image types you want to default to
being opened with GIMP.
The above is based on what I used to do in Windows XP. The steps should be
similar in Windows 7.
