I tried tortoisecvs a few months ago and I really liked it for basic daily
stuff. I think I was running version .44. However it would cause explorer
errors to pop up when I did find files. I pulled it for now. I went to the site
again and they have been quite active so maybe it's worth another go at it.

It uses wxWindows which I think was mentioned in this thread.

And they are using ViewCVS so it must be good stuff :-)
