Have you tried Tortoise CVS as a "GUI" (www.tortoisecvs.org)? It's
pretty neat because of its integration with Windows Explorer.
The VSS GUI is not an all too positive example for a user interface 
either. It's one of the (few?) Microsoft applications which have never
been aligned (or so it seems) to the Microsoft user interface and 
style guidelines.

Thanks a lot for your response. At my workplace the problem with 
forgotten check-ins occurs quite regularly, too.

I'll report back as soon as there is something new to tell.
