Download Sysinternals' Autoruns tool:


Run it, switch to the "Explorer" tab and look at the

node - that's where the all shell overlay handlers are registered.

For me it reads:

"1TortoiseNormal" to "9TortoiseUnversioned"
TortoiseSVN overlay handler shim

If those entries aren't there, it's impossible for anything Tortoise to
be the culprit... if the entries are indeed there, you can delete them.
