I just tried the download from a couple of different sites and received various error messages, including the connection timed out, source not found, etc. I then went to sourceforge (where the download's actually coming from) and found success using the Gimp page. According to that page, version 2.6.1 is for Windows 9x and version 2.8.9 for Windows 2000/XP, with 2.6.8 being no longer available. Thus, you'll have to use the newer or older version, depending on your operating system.

Hope this helps,

Help, my PC with Windows 10 won't shut down properly

Since upgrading to Windows 10 my computer won't shut down properly. I use the menu button shutdown and the screen goes blank, but the system does not fully shut down. The only way to get it to shut down is to hold the physical power button down till it shuts down. Any suggestions?
