Does Windows 7 hate GIMP?
No matter what, every time I try to load GIMP, it stops responding halfway through the load. This NEVER happened when I was using Windows XP. Is there a solution? Or is Windows 7 just against using GIMP?

Well I'm running GIMP on Win7 with no problems, so maybe something else?

Have you tried uninstalling and reinstalling?

Nick.

Never mind. It stops responding halfway through, but it eventually starts responding again and loads.

You must have a plugin misbehaving in Win7. Did you install any plugins and are they all functional? If you look in the installed plugins directories do all files look like they belong there (I once found an ancient version of 'wget', that interpreted the call from Gimp as a URL to access, so Gimp startup was delayed by the wget network time-out).

Use gimp-console --verbose to see if you have any strange messages. At worst you'll have an idea where the problem happens by looking at the messages before/after.

Gimp can also become slow to start if you have too many fonts/brushes/patters...
