Do you run anything that would frequently remove files and/or folders
from your user profile directory?

Best guess:

Gimp 2.9.5 will migrate the Gimp 2.8.x resources from the Gimp 2.8 profile to
the Gimp 2.9.5 profile.

The Windows Gimp 2.9.5 profile is well and truly hidden from regular Win users.

Go to C:\Users\your-name\AppData\Roaming\GIMP\2.9\... which has sub-folders for
resources + Gimp configuration files. see: example attachment, brushes migrated
from Gimp 2.8

Probably some plugins / scripts / fonts in there that do not agree with Gimp
2.9.5

Start with a clean sheet.

1. Delete the Gimp 2.9.5 profile folder
C:\Users\your-name\AppData\Roaming\GIMP\2.9\

2. Temporarily rename your Gimp 2.8 profile C:\Users\your-name\.gimp-2.8 to
disable it and prevent migration. say C:\Users\your-name\.gimp-2.8-bak

3. Start Gimp 2.9.5 to create a new basic Gimp profile.

4. Rename your 2.8 profile back to original name.

Does it make any difference?

Gimp 2.9.5 rechecking files every time when I launch it

Thank you for answer rich2005, but 2.8 I install after I notice that 2.9.5
issue, and yeah, I already tried to clean my Roaming folder

maybe it is about rights? some program without general access can't write what
it want to write =) but Run from administrator - doesn't help

Difficult to give advice at a distance. It could be some other application - AV
etc is the problem. Nothing reported recently on that front.

I would be tempted to go back to square one. Remove everything, including the
Gimp profiles for both Gimp 2.8 and 2.95

Which Gimp 2.9.5 are you using - The Partha version? Install that first. All I
can say is, once installed it starts quickly in a basic  Win7 VM.

Sorry, I run Linux and only have a very basic Win10 (not updated) as a virtual
machine.
