icons. If I right-click on a folder, the SVN Commit... and SVN Update...
options still show up, so apparently it's still running, or at least the
file explorer plugins are. I also checked the server and it says the
repository is running there as well.

First of all don't panic. It's unlikely that anything serious is wrong. You
can eliminate the repository straight away as a repository connection is
not used to show the icons.

The easiest thing to try is the Cleanup command which had an option to
refresh the overlays.

If that doesn't work it may be a problem with the status cache. In TSVN
settings you can change the cache from default to none and back again, or
you can kill the TSVNCache.exe process directly, then use F5 to request a
refresh of the view in explorer.

If none of that works, have you installed any other program that uses icon
overlays, or updated TSVN lately. Windows only supports 16 overlays and
some programs are greedy. Priorities can get changed when one of those
programs is updated.
