I've been using Gimp for a while on my Windows XP machines, but recently I got
two new PCs, both running Windows 7 64 bit.
Gimp appears to install fine, but when I run it, it hangs on "querying plugins:

Gimp at all.
Anyone else had this problem?

disable it (rename to shift.exe.disabled) and see if Gimp becomes
functional (if so I suspect your Gimp installer to be corrupt, because
this plugin is fairly basic and doesn't do anything that other plugins
