  1. Thanks for all the info. I went through all the graphics settings one at a time, including all the advaced settings with no noticeable difference. The only thing on the stats page I thought a little high was the ping, it was between 89-106msec. This was at Voice Echo Canyon. I'm going to try a wipe and redownload of SL. My hardware is set at 60FPS. Thanks again for all your help. I hope the reinstall will fix it. I'm scheptical though .
  2. When SL first boots up it flickers badly. By that I mean it turns black and appears to reload. Not the viewer, just everything inside the window. After a minute or two, it will stop, but then starts doing it again every time I open a dialog or control box in game. Also the game seems to run poorly compared to how it ran about a year ago. I am still using the same machine (specs. below). If anyone can help it would be greatly appreciated. CPU: Intel Core2 Quad Q9650 @ 3.00 GHz System Memory: 12 GB DDR2 1600 Hz OS: Windows 7 Ultimate 64-bit Video cards: 2X Radeon HD 4870 X2 4GBs video memory w/
  3. oh please go on about how I don't know anything about what I'm talking about when i simply didn't care to waist my time finding what specific trojan caused my problem. When, as i have explained to you simpletons, my system checked out, by that I mean a full diagnostic more in depth than your simple intellects could hope to comprehend. Assuming I have no knowledge is the last refuge of the uneducated. Again, if you could actually understand what you claim to have read in this thread, I have stated in this thread, I understand alot of people have downloaded the Phoenix viewer with no issues at

If it is taking an abnormally long amount of time for your computer to post, run its diagnostics and start windows then something is wrong with the hardware. Possibly memory problems, the bois chip itself failing or even the battery on your mother board being bad. . This entire paragraph assumes that I know nothing about computers. I have been building my own machines for 15 years. And anyone that would say
  6. I'm sure there a lot of people who run the Phoenix SL viewer. However, I downloaded it and it locked my machine up tough when I tried to start it. By that I mean no courser control, and no ability to initiate Task Manager. The only choice I had was to push the reset button. Now my Bios takes a lot longer to load. And windows takes an agonizingly long time to load. By THAT I mean at least 4 minutes. :( I have tried to repair windows to no avail. The bios I'm assuming will take a flash to fix. And it looks like a clean install of windows. If anyone out there is considering the Phoenix SL viewer,
  7.  I have done a clean install of Windows Vista Ultimate on my machine, than tried to download SL. It was sticking at initializing VFS. I tried manually clearing the cache. And made sure I rebooted before try to start SL again. I have downloaded the latest drivers from ATI. I then updated to Windows 7 Ultimate. The same thing Keeps happening. I then tried Phoenix viewer, a third party one. It still locks up my computer at the same point. I would appreciate any help anyone can offer. I want my SL back. :P Please read the entire post before you submit an answer. Thanks Yes, it's that
