    GIMP will not install!
    I go to there website (GIMP - The GNU Image Manipulation Program).
    Then I click the download button on the right.
    After that, it takes me to the download section.
    I click "Download GIMP 2.8.0 Installer for Windows XP SP3 or later."
    Then it redirects me to the Source Forge page and I download the installer.
    After I am done downloading the installer, I run the installer and get this,
    "These files are corrupt, please obtain a new copy."
    I've reinstalled the GIMP Installer, and still get the same thing.

    Additional details -
    I am running on a Acer Netbook Windows 7 Starter 32-Bit, Intel Atom Processor N450.

    You are trying to install the wrong version.
    Try this location instead: Download The Gimp 2.8.0 - FileHippo.com

    Thank you, I kind of figured I was downloading the wrong version.
    I thought "Windows XP SP3 or later" meant or later Windows versions.
    I.e. Windows 7
