So killing explorer.exe wouldn’t work? I only see a single process in my list, and looking at explorer.exe using sysinternal's ProcessExplorer, the tortoise dlls report version 1.6.6 even though I havn't rebooted yet (I installed the new version yesterday)

Would it be possible to call CoFreeUnusedLibrariesEx after unloading tortoise, even if requires a ten minute wait?

Raymond has a little discussion about it:
