TortoiseGit icons not showing correctly

What steps will reproduce the problem?
- Have a freshly installed, fully updated Windows 64bit Ultimate system;
- Install the latest version of msysgit (126.96.36.199) and restart;
- Install the latest 64bit version of TortoiseGit (188.8.131.52) and restart;
- Create a folder called "test" on the desktop; open it; right-click and select "Git Create repository here...", click "Ok";
- Create a file called "test.txt" with the text "test" inside it and commit it;
- Look at the file and folder.
What is the expected output? What do you see instead?
I expected to see both the file and the directory it is in marked with a green "V" for "ok, this is committed". Instead, both the file and the folder are marked with a red "!" as if there are any changes. Trying to commit or check the diff shows there are no changes at all.
What version of the product are you using? On what operating system?
As mentioned in the "steps to reproduce".
Please provide any additional information below.
I have tried uninstalling, removing any and all traces of Git from my system, and reinstalling from several different versions to no avail - this behavior remains consistent. It used to work fine on this computer before but I had to reload Windows on it. I have a larger work repository on it as well, on another drive, that does not show any icons at all from Git, but if I try to delete it I can't until I kill the TGitCache.exe process. I have deleted this repository for now for the new tests (as described above) but it made no difference.
Switching the icon overlay cache from "Default" to any other modes (shell, shell extended, disabled) makes no icon appear at all. The rest of tortoisegit works fine, only the file overlays appear to not work.
I'm out of things to try and fix this.
