Sad Help.
I have been running GIMP on Window's 8 for quite some time now and it has been working fine. But as of recently, when I try to open GIMP, it stops responding and refuses to open. I get the error message, "GNU Image Manipulation Program has stopped working. A problem caused the program to stop working correctly. Windows will close the program and notify you if a solution is available." I posted a screenshot below.

I have googled and googled and tried so many different things to get it to work again.. and it still won't work. :\ I've uninstalled and reinstalled multiple times too. I'm just very upset because I absolutely love GIMP and I use it for various things, including some work. So if someone could please help me out.. I would really appreciate it. Thank you!

RE: Help.
Hi Katie,

This is a common issue in wndoze 7 & 8(not for me) Please try to reset your gimp profile first.
Instructions here:

It runs fine on my w8 & I even successfully installed resynthesizer, going to test liquid rescale sometime soon.

If after resetting/renaming your "gimp" profile, it still hangs while loading, let us know, Good luck!
