[Gimp-user] gimp 2.10.8 no longer launches

earlier today, I downloaded GIMP 2.10.8 on my Windows10 machine.

Since I'm a Photoshop guy that can no longer afford PS, I installed some tweaks
to make GIMP look and act more like PS.  These tips are readily available with a
google search, and I did nothing to the GIMP files other than what was directed.

The last thing I did was to install "layer-via-copy-cut.py", and that went fine.

I quit GIMP, and now it will no longer reopen.  I don't even get the splash

I try and start GIMP, I get the hourglass cursor for a few seconds, and I get
dumped back into the shell.  No errors, no diagnostic messages, no nothing.

I took out that last file and tried again, got the same behavior.

For what it's worth, this is not the first time I've seen this behavior on this
computer.  A different program, a UWP one named Focus10 also does it.  I can
usually just reboot the computer and I can execute the program again.

This does not happen with GIMP, however.

Can someone please advise me on how I can get GIMP running properly again? 
Thanks so much!  <3
