Sad HELP! Gimp 2.6 Crashing/Extremely Slow
Ok, so I have been using Gimp for around a year now, I love it! Have never had any problems... until now. Ramdomly enough it has decided to stop working for me. On start up it takes alot longer than usual... 20 - 30 mins longer than usual! The start up splash screen freezes, along with the rest of my desktop. I always run it with nothing else running so I don't think there's anything conflicting there.

My windows updates are fully up to date, along with drivers etc. This really frustrates me because as I said, I have been running Gimp for almost a year without a single glitch.

I have also tried uninstall/reinstall, tried running the older build. If I do by some miracle get it to run, its extremely slow, freezes during simple tasks. At my witts end! Any suggestions greatly apprieciated Smile Specs below -

Done step one and so far so good, fingers crossed! Thanks SO much, I've been lost without it!

The plug ins directory is empty, should it be? (Forgive me. Fairly clueless with alot of this stuff!)
C:\Users\Dee\Gimp2.6\plug-ins ..... Is this the directory your looking for?
