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: 
shift.exe". And when I say hang, it's a serious hang - I can't open any other 
programs (eg the Chrome browser), and the only solution is to shut down the PC.

Both the laptop and my desktop PC are pretty new - they don't have much stuff 
on them yet - and they both hang at this point, so I haven't been able to run 
Gimp at all.

Anyone else had this problem?

Any suggestions very welcome - thanks in advance!

shift.exe corresponds to a plugin that isn't much used as far as I know (Filters/Distorts/Shift), so at least as a temporary measure you can 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 don't).
