Well first of all, crashes should not be an integral part of Second Life. I almost never crash but that is because I have a fairly hefty machine (new one is stellar) and a good connection. I ALSO have a hard wired modem connection which does help. I suspect that your system isn't really what SL would "like" to run well. Most of us have been there. Even many years ago most of the folks I knew that had just joined were forced to update their graphics cards in order to have a minimally optimal experience.

 

You might try using an older viewer. Either the 1.23 linden viewer still available or some of the third party viewers. These are typically easier on your system. Sometimes OLD is the way to go. Other than that, rebooting between crashes might help. Good luck. Unfortunately not everyone's machine will run SL.

Crashing is not "part of the SL experience".  I haven't crashed in SL for years (that's not an exaggeration either).  Loosing the connection to the servers is another story.........though, for me that is not a regular occurance either.  If you are using an older computer that is minimally spec'd for SL then you have to set your preferences pretty low.  Set your draw distance quit low too (like 64 meters).  Make sure your graphics drivers are up to date.  Make sure you don't have unnecessary background programs running.....turn off that email checker, Yahoo (or your favorite instant messaging program), disable any auto updates you may have for programs (I'm thinking Windows Update and your Anti Virus especially).  If you have scheduled scans or backups make sure they are set to not kick in when you are on SL.

 

Another important thing to do would be to reset your modem often........if you are on a "flaky" connection you will often loose your connection to the servers.  That's not a crash but it might as well be since you can nothing until you quit and log back in.
