Starting GIMP fails on loading tool presets
I have been using GIMP for a few weeks now and all of a sudden I cannot start the program anymore. During start up of GIMP 2.8 it displays a window saying it is loading data files. It gets as far as loading 'Tool presets' when it crashes.
I tried restarting the computer and also uninstalling and re-installing GIMP with the same end result.

Can anyone give me an idea as to what has gone wrong or how to repair this?

My OS is Win 7, 64-bit

RE: Starting GIMP fails on loading tool presets
YES! It worked perfectly. Thank you so much for your help! My GIMP is up and running again. Thank you also for responding so expeditiously.
May the coming New Year bring you more than you have wished for.

Thanks, Thomas.
