Getting started is enough to baffle most users. It has cartainly baffled me. I give up.

There is only one thing to download and install.  It is the program that we call a viewer, available at https://secondlife.com/support/downloads/?lang=en-US.  Once you download the viewer, it should install automatically.  To run it, you just click on its icon on your desktop.  When the login screen appears, type in the user name and password that you selected when you registered for Second Life.  It should not be any more complicated than that.  Once you are in Second Life, you may change your appearance by following the instructions on that Getting Started page.

Welcome to Second Life and Second Life Answers.

Yes, you are right, getting started can be a very baffling process.

The icon to which the text is referring is the one that appears on your desktop when you have got the Second Life Viewer installed. 

And it seems you have got the viewer installed, and are getting a message now when you try to log in of "protocol missing" or something?

Second Life isn't for everyone, but if you aren't quite ready to give up yet, it may be that you are getting the protocol message which is preventing you from logging into Second Life, because you need to configure your firewall to allow access.

If you wish to add more to this thread, you can do so by clicking on "options" at the top right hand side of your original post to "edit".
