Default SoniVox installs zlib1.dll in WINDOWS\system32

This morning i've downloaded and installed the SoniVox Dynamic Acoustic Bass Free Trial.
I'm using GIMP which i've just tried to start and it failed with errors.
I figured out that it was due to a file "zlib1.dll" which has been installed in the directory C:\WINDOWS\system32 (where it has no place to be) during the SoniVox installation.

dll files of third party products should not be installed in WINDOWS\system32 !

Just for your info and to prevent you from running into similar trouble.
