RE: Re: After update to 1.6.1 overlay icons disappear

This is how I fixed it for myself on Vista 64 SP1:

Killed explorer with taskkill /f /im explorer*
Started new instance of explorer
Uninstalled TortoiseSVN
Deleted TortoiseSVN folder from Program Files
Went through registry and deleted everything that was found using "Tortoise" word
Installed TortoiseSVN-

Killed/started explorer and voila! Icons are back.

I suspect that what needs to be cleaned to fix this icon problem is in here:


I think that TortoiseSVN installer does not clean up system properly when upgrading to new versions, and this may cause orphaned registry keys that refer to some invalid registry locations.
