I must warn that wouldn't recommend that.
You should probably install to
C:\Documents and Settings\USERNAME\.gimp-2.0\scripts\
where USERNAME is whatever your user name is.
that way the script is installed for the current user only.
If you are sure you want to install the script for all users of gimp on
your computer and you have the necessary adminstartor access there is
nothing wrong with doing it as was suggested but I just wouldn't
recommend it as the first choice.
