I wouldn't call that a vanilla Vista installation - seems hp has a *lot*
of crapware installed by default.

I really can't see why the context menu for TSVN doesn't show up. I've
installed TSVN on my x64 Vista Ultimate partition without any problems.
So there must be another tool/application/driver be on your system which
prevents TSVN from working properly. From the look of your screenshot
(btw: next time, just send the images and not word docs - I had to
install the word viewer first to even see them) that assumption seems
reasonable: I've rarely seen a computer with that many crap preinstalled
- you should ask hp for your money back :)

To test whether it's only the x64 bit version that doesn't work, start a
32-bit application, use File-Open to get the windows file-open dialog.
In that dialog, right-click on a folder to get the context menu: if you
see the TSVN entries there, the 32-bit version works ok.

Also check the registry for the following keys:
HKLM\Software\Classes\Directory\shellex\ContextMenuHandlers\TortoiseSVN
HKLM\Software\Classes\CLSID\{30351346-7B7D-4FCC-81B4-1E394CA267EB}
HKLM\Software\Classes\*\shellex\ContextMenuHandlers\TortoiseSVN
HKLM\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Shell
Extensions\Approved\{30351346-7B7D-4FCC-81B4-1E394CA267EB}
