Voted to move to SU; TortoiseSVN works fine on my Win7/64 box – Andrew Barber Nov 13 '10 at 3:53

The fact that you have a Program Files (x86) directory indicates that you have a 64-bit system. Are you using the x64 version?

Agree with idealmachine above: you must install the 64-bit version of Tortoise to see it in Windows Explorer. The exception to this rule is if you use 32-bit apps that give you access to the shell menu (NuSphere's PHPEd is one that springs to mind) as these will only show the 32-bit version of Tortoise. Luckily, you can have both the 32-bit and 64-bit version of TortoiseSVN installed at the same time and they do not interfere with each other.
