To remove icon overlays do this

Click on an empty area near that directory path Right click Tortoise SVN settings go to Icon Overlay Uncheck show icon overlay for ignored items It's all Done , all icon overlays of the folder are gone

If it is already revisoned then do this go to that directory / file Right click Properties of Tortoise SVN select the list item "add it to ignore list" ;Don't be afraid the file wont get deleted!! AND then repeat the above procedure.

@Danijel did this help to solve that. –  cc4re Sep 21 '12 at 7:15
I don't remember. :-( There is no more overlays, but how I resolved it I don't remember since it was a long ago. Sorry. –  Danijel Sep 12 '13 at 7:48

There is an option in TortoiseSVN | Settings | Icon Overlays | Overlay Handlers. See TortoiseSVN manual for further details.
