I'm a little confused.  How are you trying to log in?  You should not see any other virtual worlds on your SL login screen.  IMVU, WoW, .... all of them have their own login.  If you can't log in to them on their own viewers either, you have a problem that is bigger than Second Life. 

If you don't really mean "virtual worlds" but are talking about OS grids that should be available along with the Agni and Aditi grids in Second Life, you probably have a damaged viewer.  You should plan on doing a CLEAN reinstall of it, not just reinstalling a new copy on top of what's there now.  You need to remove all current files, including the hidden ones (but possibly not your saved chat and IM files).  Here's how >>> http://community.secondlife.com/t5/English-Knowledge-Base/How-to-uninstall-and-reinstall-Second-Life/ta-p/1375231

Hi Naomi,

I'm going to guess you are using Firestorm, and that you are no longer seeing the list of alt usernames/password entries that populates the log-in dropdown. Those username/password pairs are stored in an encrypted file named bin_conf.dat, which is deleted by a clean install. You'll have to re-enter the username, password and destination grid for all of your alts.

I don't think Firestorm's "backup" facility saves this information, so if you don't want to lose it again during the next clean install, find the bin_conf.dat file and make a backup. On a Windows machine, you'll probably find it in this folder...


On a Mac, you'll find it here...

Library->Application Support->Firestorm->user_settings

ETA: Rolig just informed me that Firestorm does indeed save username/password/grid settings during a "Backup", so make sure you do that before a clean install!
