I use Windows 7 by the way ;)
I downloaded the folder but I can't find the actual app anywhere else! I even tried look through Local Disk (C:) > Users > My name but nothing GIMP-related shows up! Help me please!

Gimp comes with an Installer you can download it here Gimp 2-6-12 plus Python support
Just download and run Installer it should point to C:\Program Files (x86)\GIMP-2.0
I hope this helps and welcolm to GimpChat

You probably did not download the wrong file. If you go through http://gimp-win.sourceforge.net/ then you get a regular gimp installation file 'gimp-2.6.12-i686-setup-2.exe' which is about 21 MB. The above link downloads a file with the same name but about 50 MB because as the link implies it includes python files needed to run python plugins.

Back to your original question, where does it all go in Win7, I still have some screenshots from a similar question. http://i.imgur.com/VXFok.jpg - just ignore the red lines. The Gimp installation is in a folder under "Program Files" {Program Files (X86) for Win7 64 bit)}
The first time you run Gimp it makes a "User/<your account>/.gimp-2.6" folder where you can put any brushes, extra scripts etc that you want.
It should be there, does your file browser have any "don't show hidden files" settings? I normally use linux and I can't recall the win7 settings.

The Installer I suggested contains both 32bit and 64bit versions, both with python support.

You choose by where you point it to C:/Program Files(x86) for 32bit or C:/Program Files for 64bit

I suggested the 32bit version becouse there are some plugins only written for 32bit
