Yes, several users reported that the performance regression went away with 1.6.4.

I guess this is not time-triggered but usually when the first Windows Explorer instance is opened (which, as far as I know, triggers TSVNCache.exe process, potential causer for this slowness).

You may confirm that by opening Task Manager and checking which process is taking up the CPU. If it's not TSVNCache.exe, then the problem is not caused by TortoiseSVN and you should start thinking about it (virus or other malware are common causes).

Weird. Even in 1.6.3, the CPU hogging was only for a few minutes (about 10 minutes in my case). Probably it depends on the number of SVN repositories locally checked out.

I'd suggest you uninstall, reboot, install 1.6.4. Usually, this fixes potential issues such as failures in the install process (an incoherent set of files could explain the symptom), TSVN internal cache corruption, etc.

Please try the above suggestion and, if any of these helped fixing your particular problem, please be sure to share, (mentioning which one, if you are able to make an experiment at a time).
