Windows Vista Continuously Reboots After Software Installation

    I installed TortoiseSVN client on my Vista laptop yesterday, and it had
    me reboot. Now it will continuously reboot once it gets to the login
    screen. Even if I try to login quickly, it tells me my password is
    incorrect and proceeds to reboot again (it reboots even if I don't try
    to login and just leave it alone).

    I can boot with "Last Known Good Configuration" just fine. All my
    programs are there and everything works like it should, eve TortoiseSVN.
    But, the next time I reboot, it goes back into its endless reboot cycle.

    How can I make the "Last Known Good Configuration" stick, or otherwise
    fix this problem.

    Just an FYI, I have run the diagnostics from the boot menu and it didn't
    find anything wrong.

    Thank you!

    I would assume you installed a Vista compatible solution.
    I suggest you boot off the Vista install DVD and do a restore that way,
    prior to the introduction of this software to the system, that's if the
    machine is saving Restore Points; it's enabled.

    Boot with Last Known Good Configuration and uninstall TortoiseSVN.

    To troubleshoot the problem at the same menu where you pick Last Known Good
    Configuration pick Disable automatic restart on system failure. Instead of
    rebooting you should get a BSOD. The error message will aid in

    Thanks for the reply. I tried disabling automatic restart, but it
    didn't change anything, so that didn't help.

    Even after uninstalling TortoiseSVN, it didn't change anything. I had to
    revert to a previous restore point after booting Last Known Good
    Config, and that finally got me back to a working computer.

    :( I guess I'll just have to wait for a software update and try it again.

    Thanks again.

    Were there any errors in the event logs?

    I had the same problem. I solved it with a re-install of the SVN client
    with a lot of stuff disabled. I detailed this in a post on my blog:
