Well spotted. I didn't notice that but it does seem to have worked. Thanks!

I can reproduce this, but the dialog has a checkbox "never show for this application again" or sth. like that, and it works if you check this.

The whole UAC stuff came with Vista.

I'd expect any web form where you can upload a file to trigger it.
Just hit Browse to pop up the File dialog box.

FWIW I used to use TortoiseCVS (admittedly a long time ago and with Windows XP) but I never encountered this problem. However if UAC is newer than XP, that would explain it.

Can anyone suggest a simple way of reproducing this problem (i,e, without me needing to sell something on Ebay!)? If I can reproduce it some other way I'll try Simon's suggestion and see if it helps.

32 and 64 bit versions of TSVN installed, and IE8. UAC is set to second
level (Notify me only when programs try to make changes to my computer (do
not dim my desktop). I have Icon Overlays set to Default, and Show Overlays
and Context Menu Only in Explorer unticked.

When I bring up an open file dialog in IE (such as gmail attach file) I see
the overlays and don't get the OP's security warning.

(I always make a point of developing with UAC turned on even though it's
such a pain, as all the possible UAC-related issues in the code can be
sorted out early on.)

Message this happens because of the UAC. the IE runs in low IL (protected
mode) and the TSVNCache.exe runs in medium IL so a second instance in
low IL must be started to show the overlay status for low IL apps. If
you start an application elevated and call the Open/Save Dialog you
see a 3rd TSVNCache.exe started. This time with high IL.

You might try TSVN->Settings->Icon Overlays->Show overlays and context
menu only in Explorer, which will stop TSVN showing up in open/save
dialogs. Whether that will stop the security warnings I do not know.

It's not so much an issue with Tortoise as it is IE's security model.
Every File dialog loads Explorer, which in turn will load Tortoise,
and then that activity looks to Windows like something from the web is
attempting to look at something on your computer.

I don't recall whether there's a way to make IE/Windows behave well here.

Message A week ago I downloaded TortoiseSVN which I've been using quite successfully with Windows 7 (though to be fair, I haven't had time to do much with it yet).

This morning, I wanted to sell something on Ebay. I filled in the Ebay web form and eventually got to the bit where it asks if you want to upload some pictures of the item you're selling. This brings up an Explorer browser window so I can search for the relevant image(s) on my hard drive.

Unfortunately, every time I did anything in the browser (clicking my mouse / dragging a scrollbar or whatever) I got dozens of warning messages from Windows Security saying that a program was trying to open web content via the open browser. The program was identified as TortoiseSVN.

Is this a known issue with TortoiseSVN and if so, is there any way to disable it? I'm using IE9 by the way, which I only installed yesterday so I can't say whether the issue was already present with IE8. Any help would be very welcome as I've already recommended Tortoise to some friends and don't want to end up with egg on my face!! Thanks.
