Does anyone know how to restore these icons? I installed TortoiseSVN and then uninstalled and now my project icons are all screwed up. This is on Windows 7 64-bit.

not trying to be a wiseguy, but have you rebooted since the uninstall? – Chris_K Jun 2 '10 at 20:02
Do the files open up with the proper program when you double click them? What are the file types? – James T Jun 3 '10 at 0:34

If a reboot doesn't work you can rebuild the icon cache. Here is a walk through of how to rebuild the cache.

I can't believe I didn't think of this. I usually don't reboot for weeks at a time, so this didn't even pop into my head. Thanks ;-) – Donny V Jun 3 '10 at 12:23
Glad it worked, I do the same thing with rebooting. Thanks to Chris_K too. – Hank Jun 3 '10 at 12:55
