I think it's Norton (but I'm not entirely sure - I don't use it, and it's
just what one of the people who had the problem mentioned).

System32 doesn't have precedence over the .exe directory, however in Gimp's
case, the plug-ins are stored separately from the main executable, and
System32 is searched before %PATH%. The only way to work around the problem
would be by using assemblies, but that's a whole different can of worms.
