To remove the GIMP's configuration files, you will need to find them in
your Windows user account's program data files.  It has been over a
decade (yay) since I have used any Microsoft product, so can't say where
to find these files on your system.  Uninstalling the GIMP and searching
your file system for the word "gimp" should turn them up, although you
may have to enable viewing hidden files in Windows Explorer for this to

Once found, delete the GIMP directory and try installing again.  If the
problem is a corrupted or missing or alien configuration file (which
seems likely from the symptoms), that should fix it.
