Never, ever mess around inside the .svn folders! I repeat: NEVER, EVER
mess around inside the .svn folder!

But since you already did:
delete your working copy and get a fresh checkout.

That was fixed years ago.

Configure your virus scanner to not scan your working copies. And maybe
ditch the one you're currently using and get another one.

Even though you haven't told us what *your* exact problem is, my best
guess is that your virus scanner is interfering with the files during an
update, and that makes the update corrupted. Oh, and if you're using
ZoneAlarm: abandon all hope. Seriously: ZoneAlarm was the reason for
many, many, many complaints here because it sometimes even resets the
file timestamps without reason, locks files and messes around in the
whole system.
