Gimp - update to newest version?

Q: Gimp - update to newest version?

Tech Support Guy System Info Utility version
OS Version: Microsoft Windows 10 Home, 64 bit
Processor: AMD A8-4500M APU with Radeon(tm) HD Graphics, AMD64 Family 21 Model 16 Stepping 1
Processor Count: 4
RAM: 5602 Mb
Graphics Card: AMD Radeon HD 7640G, 512 Mb
Hard Drives: C: 569 GB (507 GB Free); D: 25 GB (3 GB Free);
Motherboard: Hewlett-Packard, 184B
Antivirus: Windows Defender, Disabled

I am currently using Gimp version 2.10.8 which has been out for about 4 months now. I would expect a newer version will be available pretty soon.
My question is this: Do I just go to www.gimp.org and download the newest version when it's available and it will remove the older version and install the newest version OR do I need to manually uninstall the older version first and then download the newest version?

Hope everyone here at TechGuy is having a great holiday season

Preferred Solution: Gimp - update to newest version?

I recommend downloading and running Reimage. It's a computer repair tool that has been proven to identify and fix many Windows problems with a high level of success.

I've used it in the past to identify and fix everything from blue screens (BSOD's), ActiveX errors, corrupt files and processes, dll/exe/sys errors, recover lost memory, Windows update problems, defragging, malware removal etc.

You can download it direct from this link http://downloadreimage.com/download.php. (This link will automatically start a download of Reimage that you can save to your computer.)


Hello, New to this forum. I tried to do the things mentioned in the Windows Update Posting Instructions

I'm having troubles with my laptop lately, as both my security softwares were taken down, and now I'm running on Avast! and spybots. I used super-anti spyware and it removed a trojan however the removal seemed to be unclean as there's still a startup registry for the malware which kept on regenerating. In addition I discovered lately that my windows update with an error code of 0x80073712 have failed multiple times, and none of the solutions provided by Microsoft resolved the problem. 
I have unsuccesfully uninstalled MSE via Fix it from Microsoft, and now have inaccessible directories to the folders of MSE.
Please help me and thanks in advance for the support! In addition can you please tell me what may have causes the infection?

Yeah, I realize this is a rather old game. Anyhow, I just downloaded it the other night and I want to play it but I cannot because I can't get the sound to work on it. I go to the setup options and for some reason, every single card on there will not work for Digital Audio. Usually Soundblaster works right off, but nothing did this time. However, I am able to get the midi sound to work for some odd reason, but not the digital. If anyone has played it before or has any ideas on what I can do about it, please respond to this.

Everytime I type friendster.com or going to the General Chat of a band forum, why does Mozilla and IE always send me back to the desktop? It keeps on closing automatically if I click those websites.

And also, I cannot access google.com, yahoo.com, MIRC, and yahoo Messenger. The icons also did the same as the browsers. MIRC Chatroom automatically closes everytime I clicked it. While the yahoo messenger icon is nowhere to be found. But when I clicked on the Start Menu of yahoo messenger, IT DIDN'T APPEAR.

And there's a program that isn't part of the PC. It says, "ms_access" and inside it, contains: "Help" and "IM_LOCK" Program.

I think IM_LOCK Program has something to do with my browsers, MIRC/Yahoo messenger that sends me back to the desktop when it closes.

Is this another Virus? Please Help.

The Java Setup-Welcome says: "Whether you are playing games or music, getting email on your mobile phone, checking out a webcam...Java can make it better."

Well, I don't use a mobile phone or use my dial-up-connected computer for any of those purposes. Of course I use regular e-mail (but not IM). I do have an occasional help-related online chat with an AOL tech (my ISP) and make an occasional online stock trade.

I just wrote them to compliment them on this latest version. Here is my letter in full.

A while back, I purchased your internet security suite.

I wasn't happy with it, and I believe I communicated that to you via email.

I uninstalled it, and deleted the software from my PC.

I decided yesterday to try your software again, I purchased the latest version.

Man what a surprise. Its very fast, doesn't get in the way, seems to work perfect in every way. All my apps open without hesitation.

This is just a word of encouragement, this latest version is great, love the UI.

Keep up the good work, my hats off to you. Great Job.

A:The Newest Version of F-Secure... NICE!

A couple yrs ago they released a beta that was very unusual in UI design, it was super lite... But not sure what happened to it. I think its still available for download and installation...It was very cool.

I would like some feed back on this version of Smart Defrag.

My first concerns are the two additional programs that have to be install to get the hard drive defrag to work.

I am always concerned when something messes with directory. When I ran the Fix things, it found over 500 errors in the directory and said it had fixed them. There were some other errors fixed also but I was not too concerned about those.

I have always liked Smart Defrag, but these changes have me concerned.

Feedback would be appreciated.

I haven't trusted iobit for a few years now because somewhere along the line, I ran across a post on Overclock.net exposing some crap on them that really makes me think that they're unscrupulous. Not only that, but try Auslogics Disk Defrag and take notice of the similarities.

probs seemed to start when FF automatically cancelled the previous version and installed the new one

I'm not sure what you mean by that?? Perhaps you could tell us a bit more about what happened??? Are you referring to an auto-update to a newer program version???

However, most Fx problems originate in the user's profile (extensions, corruption etc.), not the program itself.
Rolling back program versions can seriously mess up your profile, making things worse, not better.

Rather, there are some procedures to troubleshoot, as suggested here:

Mozilla Safe Mode

Fix slowness, crashing, error messages and other problems

Hope this helps,

Hello, this is my first time visiting and would appreciate some help.

I bought a new Kodak Playsport camcorder that came with Media Impressions Software. Before buying this computer I check with Kodak to make sure the software would work in my HP Pavillion Vista 64 Bit computer. I have plenty of space, ram, Intel Pentiam Processor so that's no problem. Since I Knew I was probably going to buy this Camcorder, back in August I downloaded Quicktime. The reason I did this is that the Kodak software is poor and they told me to use the Quicktime program to play and upload to You Tube.

Well, I put my video in yesterday morning and it worked fine in Quicktime and I even uploaded a video which played very well in You Tube.

Now, while I was on the computer, I got a message from the Quicktime people that there was a new version to upgrade Quicktime available. It was Quicktime 7. So I downloaded it.
Once downloaded, my Quicktime would not play. I called Kodak and we uninstalled Quicktime, Itunes and the other little programs and tried to reinstall Quicktime 7 again. No luck. Kodak told me to check with the Apple.com and I have followed trouble shooting to no avail. I even tried to download an older version of Quicktime Player, and that did not work either.

My question.....Why is Quicktime not working in my comuter now, when the version I had downloaded a couple of months ago worked fine?

Also, is there another program that I can use instead of Quicktime Player to open my .... Read more

A:Graphics card not updating to newest version

Hi, I'm a bit confused by "The issue is that windows, and intel both say that my drivers are up to date." and then mention 2newest drivers from intel, it says they are version"

My interpretation is:
Windows insists on you having vn, but there is a later version available from Intel. If you install the later version, Windows replaces it with vn

Assuming that you want the later version, you will have realised that Windows has taken control of driver versions, and Uncle MS will replace your driver if yours isn't the MS approved version- whether older or newer.

This lets you disable particular updates:
Windows Updates - Hide or Show in Windows 10 - Windows 10 Forums
Use this to hide the update you don't want, then apply the driver update.

This turns off all driver updates (not really what you want to do)
Device Driver Automatic Installation - Turn On or Off in Windows 10 - Windows 10 Forums

Hi There,

I had a trojan infection over the last week and think I got it all removed but when trying to update to the latest java update 14 it keeps erroring with #25099 saying it failed unzipping its core files. I've tried everything I feel comfortable doing, and probably never should have uninstalled previous versions since it seems like it's gone from bad to worse, and still the same error keeps appearing. I read that you just need to disable jqs quick start from running in the task manager. It isn't there but i know what that is and did see it running previously but after uninstalling the older versions it is not showing up anymore to disable it. I tried so many different ways to set options and enabling all add ons that pertained to sun microsystems and clearing caches but nothing is making it install. I don't want to make it any worse since I just got done with a major house cleaning after my trojan house guests and don't want to mess it up. I had like a dropper agent or downloader of some kind and they brought friends and family to stay, even their "Banker" if you know what I mean. But I think they are gone. But it won't take the update and I want to get on with my business. Can you help me direct me thru how to get this resolved? Java is not my expertise at all. I did try a restore to yesterday but it didn't change the files that had already been downloaded. I guess restore doesn't make it go back to that point in tim... Read more

the problem is i can't see the newest emojis people are posting on facebook.
i don't rely use them my self but a lot of people seem to like to use emojis instead of actual words and it makes it hard to understand what they are saying when half of each of their sentences are just squares.
at first i thought it might be a facebook issue
but after some testing and such i discovered that i couldn't see the emojis on any website...
this lead me to a chrome adon that did allow me to see about half of them.... but not all of them... and the adon used its own custom looking emojis that were really big and ugly.
finally after doing some more research to try and find some thing else to replace that with i found out that my font list is out of date and needs updated to the current unicode font list.

A:Newest update? Cannot update over 10586.494.

From what I hear, Pre-Release is not yet pushing anything. Also, when you move the slider, it can take up to 24 hours for the change to take effect.

Been trying to download & install definitions file


and when I tell it to download, the "Retreiving Update" bar go's to 100% and after 30 seconds or so a box with an X in a red circle appears which says, "The downloaded definitions file could not be read, please update again". I try again with same results.

I've tried downloading it with everything except 'Systray' and 'Explorer' off and still no luck. AVG, and SpyBot downloaded OK this morning but not AdAware.

Anyone else having this problem?

I'm using Freeware version: "Installed core application 1.06r1 Personal"

I was just wondering if anyone else was having problems with McAfee's latest virus def update? I personally use Norton, but at work (tech support) we've been getting alot of calls from people that have updated to the latest McAfee upgrade, and their computer would work fine for about a week, and then the system would get stuck at the Windows 98 bootup splash screen. This only seems to affect Windows 98, and like I said, seems to happen about a week after the update. The only way that I've figured out to fix the problem is to rename the autoexec.bat and config.sys files and it boots right up. The main two things I was wondering about was if anyone else was experiencing this and if anyone knew what was causing this problem in the McAfee update?

Yesterday, I suddenly begin getting virus alerts with AVG Free edition. It only happens when I go to Amazon.com. The alerts petain to HTML Framer in the temp files as far as I can tell.

I decide to check on another computer we have to make sure if it was only on my business computer. It was on the family one as well. Then I remembered that I just updated AVG on it.....thus the business automatically updates....they both had been updated that day and now they both alert to Virus Found: HTML/Framer.

I believe it is a flawed up date, being that it only on Amazon and not other sites for our computers. Any thoughts? Or does some one know how to contact them? The AVG Free Edition offers no contact point to tell them of this possible False/Postive alert.

Just posting this for INFO on the Z170X-UD5 (version 1) board. I updated my BIOS as soon as I found out about the Meltdown-Spectre Vulnerablility about 2 to 3 weeks ago. The new BIOS version was 23F on the Gigabyte site. I noticed a lot of degradation in speed of some of my SSD's. (especially the Sandisk) Speeds of 143 write and 267 read were what I was experiencing. Watched the new Britec video this morning about updating BIOS, so I went over to Gigabyte.com to check to make sure I had the latest. A new update of 23G was available. Text said "update CPU microcode" The previous update 23F text said "update to fix vulnerability" . After installing the new BIOS, I now am getting 380 write, and 410 read on the Sandisk SSD. No newer firmware update, or Windows 10 update is forthcoming. Guess I am up to date. I am much happier!

Hello there

Last week there was one of those install new update popups where you're allowed to wait another 4 hours before it pops up.

My problem is after last weeks update my computer slowed down heavily, and I cannot see anyway to fix it. I have checked core temperature, gpu temperature and even removed all dust from the inside of my cabinet.

Under task manager it looks perfectly normal (CPU usage at 5% max.) but when I try to close it, it goes "not responding" like everything else does when I try to close it.
Also when I try to turn on my computer it boots normally, but after I log onto my account on the computer, all I see is a black screen with the cursor.

Currently it is impossible to open any webbrowers or any programs / games.

I have (by luck) made a full system scan and it didn't find any virusses or spyware. (I use Avira)

In few words... This problem came with the newest Windows 7 update... Before that I didn't run into any problems at all.

Many regards and thanks in advance.


PS: I use Windows 7 64 bit Home edition.

It may be worth looking at this, not sure if it's definitely your problem but it's possible.

I normally use Google Chrome but have been using Firefox for the last few days because some of the facebook games I play run better with Firefox. It worked okay at first but suddenly Adobe Flash 11.5 keeps crashing every 5 seconds. Windows solutions is telling me that my data execution program security is shutting it down and I followed the instructions to disable DEP for adobe flash but it won't let me. I tried using an older version of Flash but then I'm unable to play certain games. If I try to play these games on Chrome then I have problems with shockwave.

I had a problem with my bluetooth after I updated it just a few minuets ago. It was a problem where my computer couldn't even read the bluetooth at all even though my laptop already comes with bluetooth pre-installed into it. My computer couldn't even find the bluetooth settings in the settings. And all I could find on the matter of bluetooth after seaching the settings page was in the area where you can control your wireless connections where bluetooth could be switch on or off, which I couldn't even do that for it was ghosted out (Greyed out completely).

After many hours troubleshooting and looking into my computers hard ware I found that there was a USB Host Driver Problem. I checked if it could be a simple driver update fix, but it was up to date. Rollback wasn't an option at all either. So I just decided to fix it the simplest way possible, and that was to uninstall it and see if the computer will re-install it on restart. To my surprise the computer didn't do anything at all. Instead after deleting it, that USB driver stayed deleted, and the bluetooth worked just fine after, settings and all. Apparently that extra driver is not necessary for bluetooth and it just screws things over.

If anyone else is having the same problem with this error, I hope what I have layed out for you in this thread will be your solution as well.

I installed the BIOS version 2.46 (rel. 12/18/2017) today for my T440p and after the flash, my fingerprint reader stopped working. In Windows device manager it reports an unknown USB device which has "descriptor request failed". Then I entered the BIOS config and found that the fingerprint reader was not detected at all even out of the OS. Under security tab I tried to reset fingerprint data and it said that no fingerprint reader was detected. Now I have rolled back to the last BIOS version 2.44 and the fingerprint reader started to work again. I am aware that the latest 2.46 addresses the meltdown exploit so please investigate and fix this problem... Thanks,
