We've found that on some systems, particularly slower ones, Norton AntiVirus can significantly slow down the texture cache system introduced in 1.14.0.

In order to minimize this problem, we recommend adding the following directories to the list of ignored (trusted) directories for Norton AntiVirus:

  • The Second Life skins directory (i.e. C:\Program Files\SecondLife\skins )
  • The Second Life cache, which you can find in the Network tab of the Preferences window in Second Life under Disk Cache Location (i.e. C:\Documents and Settings\User\Application Data\SecondLife\cache)
