If you have purged the Gimp installation and disabled any Gimp profile (...\gimp-2.8 and 2.6)

The only thing I can suggest is a slightly different compilation of Gimp 2.8

So back to removing all you have installed.

If you go to http://www.partha.com/ you can get a 64 bit version rather than the regular 32+64 bit from Gimp.org
direct download is http://www.partha.com/downloads/Gimp-2.8-64bit.exe It is safe.

Might make a difference.

I have one more addition to rich's latest above post. Head on over to to portableapps if the partha version doesn't work either.

The portable version of Gimp is exactly Gimp, just you don't need to install anything.
Just extract the .exe into a custom folder in "my documents"

SUCCESS! The Partha 64 bit download worked perfectly and I am SO glad to have my gimp back.

I can't thank you people enough for all your suggestions and problem solving abilities, not to mention knowledge that I'll never have!
