Question

Hello kenny and welcome to SL Forums. We known nothing about your system's specs and your internet connection. Some more details would be helpful for a better and more specific answer. You can edit your post (Options on the right --> Edit), providing further informations. My feeling is that you experiment lag. Easily you can check it out if you open the statistics bar with Ctrl+Shift+1. A first suggestion is to set your performance to lower under preferences --> graphics. See if that makes any difference. About your question, which is the best viewer for windows 7, there is no a specific answer. For example for me is Viewer 3. For others is Phoenix or Firefox. If for you the problem is general with all viewers, maybe your system can't handle better performance.

Please supply system details as LoveAngel requested.

You're in SL a while so I'm guessing SL was ok before and now isn't. If that is the case and this slowness is new and not something you experienced before with this computer, start looking at your graphics card, CPU, overheating etc. Maybe your graphics card is beginning to fail or is overheating, maybe your CPU is overheating.

Run a hardware monitor such as http://openhardwaremonitor.org/ and see what is happening inside your computer.

You may also want to get the free program GPU-Z to see what your video card is doing. GPU-Z will give Graphics Load as a percent of GPU use. I seldom see my load go over 30% with SL.

Also System Explorer (another free program) gives a single easy to read set of graphs showing system activity, no temps. You'll want Open Hardware Monitor for temps.

Look at Pages Faulted in System Explorer. You can find the same numbers in the Windows Performance Monitor too. The rate of page faults, memory swaping to disk as the computer runs out of RAM memory, should be low. If the rate increases while SL Viewer runs it can be an indication of a memory leak, which current viewers have on some systems, or a need for more RAM. Page faulting slows things down. If you have a high fault rate, close all other programs. You may need to restart the computer to clear memory locked out by leaks.

You may also want to try the Beta and/or Developement versions of the viewer. They install in separate folders so you can have the main, Beta, and developement installed at the same time. If you do, avoid using their un-install program if you remove them. The Lab's viewers all seem to use the same uninstall program. So, last time I un-installed the Beta it broke my main viewer and the development viewer. Remove them manually.

If you plan to run multiple viewers, read: Second Life Clean Install. I wrote this for those that use more than one brand of viewer. You won't need to do a clean install to try the Beta or Developement viewers, but understanding what the install process will save you problems.

Remember. The Beta and Developement viewers are for those helping debug viewer developement. They are not meant for the daily user. These testing viewers vary considerably in how stable they are. Some are great, some crash every few minutes. But, using them can tell you if your problem is a viewer problem or not.
