My guess is that you've got some really bad virus scanner running. There
are some scanners which lock all files _exclusively_ so that Subversion
can't access its own files anymore!
You should configure your virus scanner to ignore .svn folders. If it
can't be configured that way - get another scanner.

Also, check out the FAQ about this:
