Re: [Gimp-user] Uninstalling Gimp crashes computer

Since my daughter installed it, Partha, I don’t know which version it is.
And as I mentioned, I tried to uninstall it, both from the Control Panel and
also from the Gimp tree in the directory, and the uninstall process kept
crashing the computer.  That was the issue.  Fortunately, everything is
resolved now.  Thanks!

My 11-year old daughter installed Gimp on our laptop.  Shortly after,

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.

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
