# Windows system corruption following tortoise install

Hi,

Both mine and a workmate's computers have had their
WINNT\System32\config\system file corrupted following the installation
of the latest version of tortoise (1.3.3 Build 6219). Following the post
installation reboot windows failed to load up on both of these machines,
which seems more than a mere coincidence. The only means of recovery was
to use a backed up one e.g. from the WINNT\repair directory using the
emergency repair console. I believe that the 'system' file is normally
supposed to be around 3MB (I may be wrong) and that the corrupted one,
post tortoise installation, had inflated up to 32MB.

Regards,
