GIMP: Kill gimp when accidentally launched

Have you ever started GIMP by mistake on a slow computer? I have. I have then tried to end my life. Luckily, GIMP takes so long to start on your average computer that you can come up with several colorful ways of killing yourself before it opens so that you can close it.
No more though. These days I kill GIMP instead. Thoroughly.

I’ve just created a small BAT script and put on my desktop with the following content

taskkill /im gimp-2.6.exe

Just change the version to fit your GIMP version and save it as gimpKiller.bat on your desktop. The next time you accidentally start GIMP, double click on the file and it will end your suffering…
