The GIMP is a safe program.
I'd trust Broni's opinion alone on most things, personally.

What site advisor was this posted at and where is the DLoad location you were going to use ? ?
This all sounds like complete rubbish to me...

    Its a little slow-loading though.
    It needs a lot of computer power.

          Memory size is 128 mb.  Memory type is DDR SGRAM/SDRAM.  Didn't see anything about bits.

          If you're a gamer, it may not be enough. I'm not, so I can't be sure.

            Have you not seen the words under my avatar?  I will get more RAM, though usually games run pretty well on my computer.  I will now stop posting here, as it is the wrong place.  Thank you for your help.

              Hey, let's all  be nice.  You were all noobs at some point.  I'm not saying you are though, !~*:.Pink Floyd.:*~!.  You're just cautious.  Maybe a little too cautious, but cautious is good.  And you know, you could have just searched for reviews of GIMP.  There are many reliable software review sites, like Freeware Files, or Download.com.  Why not try finding things on your own?  You might like it.  I sure do.  Just wondering, what do you need GIMP for?
