    So my computer crashed. So I restored it. Now it won't load GIMP past the looking for fonts in the preloader.


    Anyone else ever had this problem?

    It will sit there for about half an hour, then my computer bluescreens and shuts down.

    I've tried reinstalling.
    Redownloading and reinstalling.
    Deleting fonts folder.
    Creating new fonts folder. . .

    Any other suggestions? I'm a bit desperate.
    Hopefully I can get a new computer in the next few weeks and be done with toshiba.

    Hmm....
    Try deleting the gimp-2.6 folder under C:\Documents and Settings\YourName (remember the backup!), then re-launch Gimp.

    You probably need to re-add the path variable to Gimps bin folder.
    For example mine is C:\Program Files\gimp-2.0\bin
    Just find your PATH variable in your environment variables and add the path to it at the end of the string of values.
    Be sure to add a semicolon BEFORE the Gimp path though.That tells windows its a new variable value.
    Normally on a restore the paths are all reconfigured to that date.I am surprised Gimp is the only program not working. :)
