Hello Gene, welcome to Second Life : )
Completely uninstall all Viewers, How do I fully uninstall and reinstall Second Life? Make sure all Caches, User Settings and content of any Windows Temporary folders are also deleted.
Shut down your computer.
Then download the latest Viewer from here Second Life® Installer, save the programme to your Desktop and install.
When you're logged in as a Basic account holder or Guest, you should only use the Special Questions - Basic account or Guest Login ticket type. Ticket types for Basic account holders and Guests include the following.Account issue - Use one of these if you're having a problem creating or logging into their account.

This error seems to have re-emerged (on XP) with the latest client release. The symptom is repeated popups of a box telling you that media_plugin_webkit has failed to load, followed by failure of shared media to work, etc.
I've had various luck with the rigamarole of "removing all prior versions, yadda-yadda, sterilizing system, reinstalling XP, buying a new computer, etc." Usually something works. Meanwhile, a good temporary fix involves finding slplugin.exe in the folder SecondLifeViewer2, right-clicking it, and setting Compatibility to Windows95.

The new viewer generation (SL 2.0, Emerald, Snowglobe, etc) uses AppleWebKit (aka Safari) as an internal browser and to render media in-World in Windows and Mac Environment. So, if you are a Windows or Mac user, you must to install the Adobe Flash Player for Safari to watch flash content (the plugin is the same for Firefox and Opera).
The Flash Player Plugin for Internet Explorer and Chrome does not work for SL.
Visit the link below, select your System Environment on Combobox, choose the plugin for Other Browsers (Firefox, Safari and Opera) and be sure that you are dowloading the correct plugin and install it:
Download the last QuickTime player and install or update it:
I am sure the steps above will solve your problem
