I've used Gimp 2.4.2 for years now, and haven't upgraded because it works fine.
Today for some unknown reason, when I open a file in Gimp and click
Colors>Brightness/Contrast, the window for the Contrast/Brightness tool shows on
the bottom taskbar of my computer, but I cannot access it. It's as if it's
minimized and I cannot undo that. I tried uninstalling and reinstalling Gimp,
but it seems to be keeping settings and/or files on my computer because even
after uninstalling it, rebooting and reinstalling it, the work history still
shows up and the problem is still there.

I even tried uninstalling Gimp and upgrading to the latest version
(2.8.whatever) and now the problem is happening with the Hue/Contrast tool. It
simply does not open. On the main menu it will show the Hue/Contrast dialogue
box, but it says something about "Tool has no options". I can't even find what
that says now, because when I re-open Gimp, I do not get the main menu that used
to pop up. Only a window to open a new file.

Is Gimp string some sort of corrupted files on my computer? How do I fix this?

Find your Gimp profile like this: (with of course a different version number).

Then erase the "sessionrc" file in it (which is where the windows positions are kept). In case of more problems, rename the whole directory, restarts Gimp (this will create a new one) and then move your things (brushes, scripts, etc...) from old to new.

But installing a later Gimp version would be a good idea.
