Thank you for using TortoiseSVN.
After carefully reading your very detailed report we're going to
immediately abandon the project and send the signatures of all
installler files to any major company which provides a virus scanner so

they can mark already existing installations of this malware as such.
Since your report included very detailed information on how to reproduce
the multitude of serious problems we found that these are non-fixable at
all, therefore the only option we have is to abandon the whole project.

This means for you that you either have to use another version control
system or maybe another Subversion client.
Below are links to other Subversion clients to make it easier for you to
find one that actually works and is not malware:
