It's very hard to guess with only that much information.  Usually, if the viewer gets hung up while it's waiting for a handshake response from the server, it's because you have either a firewall or an overly aggressive anti-virus program blocking it.  Either one is possible. Those programs typically update every few weeks, sometimes changing how aggressive they are toward other programs on your machine.  Some anti-virus routines -- Norton in particular -- can make it hard to log in.  You'll need to be sure that you have current exceptions for Second Life (or whatever viewer you are using) in each firewall or anti-virus program.

Finally, if you ever feel a need to reinstall your viewer, it's wise to do a CLEAN reinstall, rather than simply downloading a new copy of the viewer over what's already there.  A clean reinstall will remove all hidden files, which may well have the troublesome settings that are giving you problems.
