Make sure that box is not checked.

TortoiseProc has nothing to do with the overlays. It's the
TortoiseSVN.dll that's responsible for that.
And the TortoiseStub.dll, and of course the TortoiseOverlays.dll which
is installed to %COMMONPROGRAMFILES%\TortoiseOverlays.

Nope, that doesn't cause problems. That's what the manifests are for
after all so it does *not* cause problems.

What I've discovered is that Vista with the latest updates and Win7
don't load the overlays anymore for file-open/save dialogs. I haven't
discovered yet under which circumstances they still get loaded, but in
most cases, they won't get loaded anymore.
