GIMP Error?
I've tried to download GIMP 3 times now and each time I get the same error when I try to run it. I attached a picture of the error. Anyone know how to fix it?

On the download page you see this:

MD5: 631dbbcf6ffcd5249d30a6cde934d35f

The MD5 is a "magic number" computed from the contents of a file. In practice you can't have two different files giving the same MD5 so it is used to check file integrity. Find a MD5 computing utility for Windows and check you downloaded file.

i dont know very much about that kind of stuff
