By the way there is another version of Gimp-2.7.3 out that uses Python-2.6 :)
JamesH put it together, and you can find it here
http://www.gimpchat.com/viewtopic.php?f=8&t=2241#p29084

Along with more info on it.

This version includes
GMIC
MathMap
GAP
Plus a few other goodies.Some scripts do not work because they are from a Gimp-2.4 version so just delete the ones that do not work for you or try and fix them.

Maffe, stop stealing the post. So what's your current status Bravo?

If it's still giving you problems, uninstall Gimp and delete these folders:

C:\Program Files\GIMP-2.0
C:\Documents and Settings\username\.gimp-2.6
C:\Documents and Settings\username\Application Data\gtk-2.0 (you may need to show hidden files)
Also the Help files folder, not sure it's address since I don't have it installed.

Then clean your registry again and delete any temp files (I recommend for those two tasks). Reboot your computer, and install Gimp from the Gimp site, http://www.gimp.org/downloads/ use the stander installation settings and let us know if that helps. :)

Honestly if the portable version of Gimp-2.6.11 will not even work on your machine something is blocking it (GTK) from running.

After Davids suggestion and if it still doesn't work try this...
Download and install on a USB flash drive Gimp-2.6.11 portable from
http://portableapps.com/apps/graphics_p ... p_portable
Make sure to install the program on a removable drive.
Now try and use it on another machine.If it works your machine is the problem not Gimp.
So then you can rule out Gimp.
That would mean GTK is the problem and Windows is blocking it from running somewhere somehow.
try running without your virus control program running. (disable it)
If that doesn't work...
Make sure Windows updates are all current and try installing Gimp again.
