See this FAQ:
http://tortoisesvn.sourceforge.net/?q=node/79

As you can see, you have several options:
- do nothing and live with it
- be generous (very generous) and send me a 64-bit laptop with WinXP-64
installed so I can build/test/adjust TSVN for 64-bit
- start the 32-bit explorer version located here:
%windir%\syswow64\Explorer.exe

It might be enough to just recompile the shell extension with a 64-bit
compiler. But without being able to do that and without having the
chance to test it, we can't do that.
Even if someone would compile it with a 64-bit compiler (there's one
included in the Windows SDK for example), I won't release such a
version. Because I just could not react to problem reports - no chance
to reproduce them, no chance to fix them, ...
