Re: Icon Overlays Still Showing Even After Tortoise SVN 1.5 uninstalled

Hi Stefan,

Thanks for the response. I am fairly certain that I do not have any
other Tortoise application installed. There is nothing in the "add/
remove" programs and nothing shows up in any of the context menus.

Is there a way to be sure that nothing is installed?

I do have other SVN clients on my machine, but they are attached to my
IDE, Eclipse, and they do not install as a shell extension. So
Subclipse (and Collabnet) to be exact.
