There are several 'Third Party Viwers' - you just download the one you want and then run that instead of the normal SL viewer. http://wiki.secondlife.com/wiki/Third_Party_Viewer_Directory

'Things staying grey' is, probably, a different issue though - it's all about download speed, bandwidth limits and almost everything else on the internet :-(  SL is not like normal programs, almost everything is made by other residents and has to be downloaded as you see it, rather than being installed once

Your problem probably stems from cache corruption.  For some reason (since it's prevailant with almost every viewer it appears to be an issue that is not easily resolved by the developers), the different viewers use the same cache location as all the others.  Try launching each viewer and in your preferences clear the cache (you don't have to log in).  That should clear up your problem.  If not, then the next thing to do is launch each viewer and go to the tab where you would clear your cache and make a note of the cache location is shown next to the "clear cache" or "reset" button.  Close the viewer and navigate to that location and manually delete the entire cache folder (for both viewers).  That will not harm your installation as the folder will be rebuilt the next time you launch the viewer.......it forces a more complete deletion of all the files in the cache.
