So disappointing! Another honorable icon of the art world takes a dive…the new gimp 2.8 with windows installer available on the www.gimp.org website is corrupted with adware and will compromise your computer! Perhaps old copies are safe if you get them elsewhere-say from another old computer of yours. I haven’t tested all sources of downloads such as Softonics which says their download is safe! I can’t go into specifics here as I just spent hours going round and round hopefully in the process of totally removing it from my newly restored PC which took hours to restore. No, I’m not sure it had anything to do with the demise of the PC in the first place but I suppose it might have.
