[Gimp-user] Startup problems

Hi there 

I think I may have posted this question into the wrong thread.  Hoping someone can help me.  I have become 
quite fond of GIMP and use it to make posters, images and colouring pages for my classroom.  I recently was 
given a new HP Probook 4530s with Intel Core i5 processor and it is running Windows 7.  I tried to download 
and install Gimp 2.6 but when I start up I get an error saying:  The procedure entry point libintl_setlocale 
could not be located in the dynamic link library intl.dll.

On the Gimp FAQ - it says that this is a fault connected to HP machines and that a broken app placed the file 
in the system32 directory.  It also says that I should rename the file and it should work.

I am not quite computer savvy - so I would like someone in the know to help me out here.

1.  What should I rename the file to?  And should I move the file from the system 32 folder to like some Gimp 

2.  Some other HP user said that renaming the file interefered with some Logon User Interface - I am not 
going to pretend like I even understand what this means - but it reads as if merely renaming the file caused 
something else to malfunction.  

Like I said earlier - I am very naive when it comes to computers and how they work so may I please ask 
someone who has successfully resolved the problem to talk me through step-by-step (I mean like seriously 
treat me as if I am someone who has just learned to turn a PC on) on how to fix this problem.

I sont even know what to rename the offending system 32 file.  Is that intl.dll file the system32 file for 
windows - or does it contain all the files for Gimp including legitimate Windows files.  Uuuurgh - so 
As far as I can see when I start up Gimp - all the plug-ins and things like web-browser.exe files cannot be 
found.  I dont know what registry items and all that in-the-know pc speak is all about.  I really need my 
hand held on this. 

Can anyone help out a naive schoolteacher in Africa with this?  Anyone?  Sorry if I posted this twice by 
accident (told ya - dumb pc user I am!)
