Note that update will only appear inside a checked out module directory. In a "regular" directory you should see only cvs checkout in the context menu (and in the file menu of the explorer). If the overlays don't work, the above should still be there, but without the overlay icons. I remember something about turning the overlay icons off if there is a problem with them. Maybe try this first to see if you get all menu items and worry about the overlays later.

I do not see these options and I read the FAQ page at
web site saying that IE4 with desktop extension must be installed and
then reinstall IE5 or IE6. Is there any other way around to get the icon
overlays to appear?

I do updates and commits (checkins) with tortoise all the time. I use WinCVS and the command line cvs client for more advanced stuff (like tree graphing and changelog generating). But tortoise is pretty complete for day to day use.

TortoiseCVS offers some integration with Windows Explorer with options
such as web log based on cvsweb, make tag, merge from a branch, remove a

another client such as WinCVS as GUI or you use CLI to do update or
