    I have a Macbook Pro - OS X version 10.6.8
    4 gigs of RAM.

    Okay, I noticed that my mac was running REALLY slow.
    So I opened up my Activity Monitor and I noticed that when I would searched for .xcf files that GIMP would open up multiple times in the background. So many times that it would lock up my computer.

    The problem is that anytime that I open up a folder with XCF files in it, GIMP again begins to open up multiple times in the background and locks up my computer.

    HELP!

    Welcome to Gimper tonto777.
    Where did you get the installer?
    If you have - Mac Snow Leopard 64-bit or higher

    Uninstall Gimp completely.
    Go here - http://www.partha.com
    Download the 64 bit installer, and re install that version.Tell me if that works.
    If it does the same thing, leave a message for Partha on http://www.gimpchat.com or his contact page on the first page of his website http://www.partha.com where you downloaded the Mac version.
    Partha knows quite a bit about the Mac system, and his builds are very trustworthy.
    Just mention i sent you to him for help. :)
