    After trying several quite drastic methods for preventing the "User Account Control" uac window ["Do you want to allow the following program to make changes to this computer" - yes/no] from popping up in Windows7 (without actually uninstalling the uac - which I would like to keep for the security benefits) every time gimp runs I discovered:

    <a class="postlink" href="http://registry.gimp.org/node/25106" onclick="window.open(this.href);return false;">http://registry.gimp.org/node/25106</a>

    In my case, I just uninstalled Gimp 2.6 (then in "C:\Program Files (x86)\GIMP-2.0")
    and then reinstalled it in
    and the problem vanished !

    Hope others find this helpful.
