Reinstalling Gimp is usually not mandated and pretty much useless. If
you can't find the tool setting that went sour you have better rename
your Gimp profile to have Gimp restart with the defaults
I had this issue on every single image, even on new, blank ones.

I solved the problem by uninstalling the software again and deleting every
GIMP-related folder in C:\Users\(nameoftheuser)\

A fresh install then did the trick; go figure...thanks a bunch for your reply

I'm pretty sure that erasing the Gimp folder under C:\Users\(nameoftheuser)\ would have been enough. Reinstalling software on Windows is mostly a way to reinstate the proper values in a corrupted registry, but Gimp doesn't use the registry.
