Just to make it clear, you did exactly these steps (with "Firestorm" replaced by "SecondLife" in case you tried the official viewer)?

 

Firestorm "Locks Up" on "Initializing VFS"

If this occurs, chance are good that the inventory cache is corrupt. Deleting it should solve the problem.

  • Locate your cache folder. You will probably need to do this manually, if you are unable to log in. Use a file manager (like Windows Explorer for Windows system, Dolphin, or some such) to locate the cache folder. In its default location, the cache folder is hidden on most OSs. To find it, you will need to show hidden folders. Default cache locations are:
    • Windows XP: C:\Documents and Settings\[uSERNAME]\Local Settings\Application Data\Firestorm
    • Windows Vista: C:\Users\[uSERNAME]\AppData\Local\Firestorm
    • Windows 7: C:\Users\[uSERNAME]\AppData\Local\Firestorm
    • Mac: ~/Library/Caches/Firestorm
    • linux: ~/.firestorm/cache
  • In this folder, locate the files named data.db2.x.* and index.db2.x.* (where * is a digit: 0, 1, 2, etc; you may have more than one of each type of file)
  • Delete all files that match these two names.
  • Log back into SL, to a quiet region (try Hippo Hollow, Aich or Hatton). Allow your inventory to repopulate fully.

Windows only: If the above doesn't work, then click the speaker icon in the system tray, then touch the volume slider, just enough to change the volume slightly. It may be that the Windows sound system has stalled; this should “give it a kick”.

i've been experiencing this exact same issue with firestorm. the second life viewer doesn't work either, or any other viewer. it happened after reinstalling my operaing system. everything else on my computer works, all other games play. i've manually cleared cache as suggested by the other suggestion, but that's done nothing to help, neither has clean reinstallation of firestorm or second life, or updating graphics card, or rolling back graphics card drivers, restarting computer, i've tried every suggestion on forums and wiki's, nothing seems to help. sl just keeps on crashing. i'd love help with this issue.
