  1. Trust me, I have no registry errors and I defrag my computer at least once per week, that is so not the issue. Besides, nothing runs slow on my computer EXCEPT SL, and even then, loading up SL isn't slow at all, just being in-game is. I don't get a FPS over 10 or 15 even on sims that have NOTHING on them. As far as Google Chrome, downloading it and setting it to the default browswer shouldn't do anything to speed up or slow down SecondLife, especially when, even if what you say is true, it's not true for the third-party viewers, which also run slow.
  2. Well, what I don't understand is, other people that I know, aren't experiencing any lag at all. Then with me, no matter what settings on what viewer I use, I get nothing but lag. Then agian, if you connect to Second Life and your connection goes through a regionally based server depending on where you live, then obviously the one where I live is bombed. I just wanted to make sure SL didn't create some new thing that any component of my computer just doesn't like in the past 6 months.
  3. Alright, first, let me give you my machine specs, which haven't changed since 2 years ago: Gateway DX4300-03 Graphics: ATI Radeon HD 4600 (1 gig dedicated ram) Processor: AMD Phenom 9750 Quad-Core Processor (2.4 Ghz) RAM: 8 GB (7.75 usable) OS: Windows 7 Home Premium x64 Connection: DSL (2,000 kbps down - that is American Internet for you -_-) Now, back in February, before I quit until recently, SL ran fine, and I had the graphics slider set to uh, I forget what it is, but it's the third one from the left, second to last, of the four, or whatever. On top of that, I had the advanced options open and added more stuff, like increased the draw distance, increased the quality on certain things, turned on water reflections for EVERYTHING. Again, SL ran fine. Also, I went on Can You Run It? and checked. I just started using SL again these past few weeks and, well, alright all viewers I did the same thing I am about to talk about with, and all viewers are up to date with the latest, and all drivers on my computer are completely up to date, and no viruses, didn't have any other programs running that use bandwidth, etc, and ALL of them lagged like crazy. Viewers I tried: SL Viewer, Imprudence, Kirsten's, Phoenix, Dolphin Settings: graphics all set to the lowest. Port fixed on X port, port forwarded on router for said port. Chache cleared, also complete uninstall reinstall of ALL viewers (only one installed at a time) (so don't say this, DON'T!) Absolutely NO other programs running that can use bandwidth. (don't say this either, DONT! Already done.) All of them STILL lagged like, insanely, averaging 10 FPS across the board no matter where I was, any sim, any location, areas with no traffic even, still insane lag. On my graphics card options, I don't have any 3D quality enhancements (but speed enhancements) turned on. Nothing at all has changed on my computer since back when SL worked, other than I've been updating the drivers to the latest versions whenever they come out (and I mean going to the actual website for the component and getting them, as often times Windows Update doesn't have the latest driver for it). Also, Windows 7 is completely up to date with all updates. Also, I have updated my antivirus and do regular scans (Avir, but I also do scans with Malwarebytes and SpyBot - Search and Destroy) at least once per week. Also, I don't have a whole lot of stuff in my inventory. Also, my current avitar rendering cost is only Everything is slow though. Log in slow, initial loading slow, teleporting slow, EVERYTHING slow. So, is there a problem with the latest viewers and anythign to do with my system or, what? Because, nobody else seems to have these problems, and I've done literally EVERYTHING you can do to get it to run faster and nothing. >_< I also went on Can You Run It? (opens in new window) and checked my computer for SL, and not only does everything check off on requirements, it checks on on reccomended too. Hrm.
  4. Thanks, I think I'll give that Kirsten's a shot. It's just that I downloaded like 3 or 5 differen't viewers so far and they were all the highly recommended ones and they're all pretty much the same.
  5. Also, what do the third-party viewers have against using the asdw keys for movement? >:C
  6. Yeah so, I love the SL viewer 2.0, but this latest update 2.6.9, like, lags something insane. I know there's features in the third-party ones like more attachment points, double-click teleporting, etc. I don't care about that crap. All I care about is a viewer that looks and feels like the SL 2.0 without all the buggy crash crap. I absolutely HATE HATE HATE the SL 1.0 look/feel with the stupid circle menue and all that damn blue everywhere. >_<
  7. I'm having the same problem with this latest update. I didn't run any tests but, it will run fine for maybe one minute, then start to lag out like crazy. I've never had problems before with SL or the SL viewer. These are my machine specs (just so you know that my machine is not the problem): OS: Windows 7 x64 (Home Premium) AMD Phenom QuadCore processor 2.4 Ghz 8 GB ram ATI Radeon HD 4600 graphics card So yeah... I tried clearing the cache as well, but this did absolutely nothing, I slammed all my settings down to the lowest quality and nothing, still laaaaaaaaaaaag like crazy. I've also been to several diferrent regions and sims and the same problem happens everywhere.
