If you're able to do that, can you not just create the folder that you're pointing Phoenix to, before closing it?

I tried to do that, but when I create a folder with the same name I used to have, it seems to just disappear off my desktop. I get a pop up asking me if I want to merge it with a pre-existing folder of the same name, but I don't see any pre-exiting folder.

When I rename it something different, the viewer tells me the change will take affect after I load it, but then it won't let me load it. It just crashes instead of loading.

Hi. I keep trying to think of something but I can't stop thinking about what has become a standard reply, so...have you tried deleting those hidden folders I keep reading about? Copied from LoveAngel:  If the problem remains, clear your cache (XP) - C: \ Documents and Settings \ (USER NAME) - Application Data \ SecondLife and C: \ Documents and Settings \ (USER NAME)\ Local Settings \ Application Data \ Second Life (Vista) - C: \ Users \ (USER NAME) \ AppData \ Roaming \ SecondLife and C: \ Users \ (USER NAME) \ ApplData \ Local \ Secondlife (Win 7) - C: \ Users \ (USER NAME) \ AppData - Roaming \ SecondLife and C: \ Users \ (USER NAME) \ AppData \ Local \Secondlife Delete everything in those folders and restart first your computer and after the program. Usually the folder Appdata is a hidden folder. (Windows Tools \ Folder Options \ View & enable Show Hidden Files/Folders)

Uninstall all viewers. Save chat files first if you wish, you can drop them back in afterwards. Remember to manually delete all Second Life, Phoenix and other TPV folders in AppData > Roaming and Local. Leave nothing there at all.

Now go to C; > Windows > Prefetch and delete the prefetch files for Phoenix, SecondLife and any other viewers you have.

Now reinstall Phoenix and try logging in.

I agree with Nyll that you need to uninstall ALL the vierwers. Also power dowm your modem / router  and your computer for at least 5 minutes. Check all the following paths and delete everything there:

(Win 7) - C: \ Users \ (USER NAME) \ AppData - Roaming \ SecondLife AND

C: \ Users \ (USER NAME) \ AppData \ Local \ Secondlife AND

C: \ Users \ (USER NAME) \ AppData \ Local \ PhoenixViewer AND

C: \ 623fl \ Users \ (USER NAME) \ AppData \ Local \ Temp \ Phoenix AND

C: \ 623fl \ Users\ (USER NAME)  \ AppData \ Roaming \ Secondlife

Check after uninstallation that you have deteled all files in folders:

C: \ 623fl \ Program Files \ SecondLiveViwer2 and Phoenix Viewer AND

C:\ Program Files \ SecondLiveViwer2 and Phoenix Viewer

Thank you to everyone who anwered. I did a clean uninstall & installed the newest version of Phoenix today, which finally fixed the problem. All of you who said the problem was probably hidden files were right. I got rid of them before installing the newest Phoenix Viewer & now I'm back on SL again,Yay!
