Microsoft removed the ability to have custom columns in Explorer as of Vista.

Others have reported problems with SolidWorks as well (search this
mailing list's archive, it's been reported in the past few weeks). The
problem appears to be with their shell extension, as it doesn't happen
for thousands upon thousands of people who don't have SolidWorks. Open
a case with them; presumably you have a support contract with them,
and the TortoiseSVN developers can't buy a multi-thousand-dollar piece
of software just to debug problems in that vendor's code.

It's also possible that SolidWorks is causing interference with item #1 above.
