There are two reputable places to get Gimp Windows installers:  the gimp-win
project on sourceforge ( for the 2.4 & 2.6
versions and Partha's site for 2.7 ( Everything else is
a bit suspiscious, and could have included unwanted software (trojan or
else). Or it's a mere chronological coincidence and Gimp isn't implied (if
you let your 11-yo install anything on your computer, goes know what else
got installed).

As far as I remember the Gimp Windows installation is all under the Gimp
installation tree (no DLLs copied to Windows directories) and it doesn't set
anything in the registry, so erasing the installation tree may be sufficient
to uninstall it completely.

gimp-user-list mailing list
gimp-user-list gnome org

My version comes with an installer which you will not copy anything to
the Windows directory. Also, to uninstall, simply go to the control
panel, and uninstall.
