Tortoise Update failing with ".svn/tmp directory may be missing or corrupt" on Windows 7

I had Tortoise SVN running fine with my previous XP O/S. I backed up the respository, installed Windows 7 (32bit) reinstalled SVN (1.6.12), imported the repository, installed the new version of Tortoise (1.6.10) with no problems. Now when I do a file comparision Tortoise is working okay, the problem I am having is when I try to Clean Up, Update or Commit any file I get the messages:

Your .svn/tmp directory may be missing or corrupt; run 'svn cleanup' and try again
Can't open file
'XXXXXX\.svn\tmp\entries': The
system cannot find the path specified.

I have already tried:
1) installing Tortoise again (in repair mode) as per the installation instructions.
2) installing Windows hotfixes KB954430 and KB973688
3) changing permissions on the folder containing the files being commited.

None of the above have fixed the error.
Any assistance gratefully received!
