Hi, please help me with the problem. The problem seems to be in JRE: every time i try to use java-based application (minecraft), this app suddenly closes and in the folder, where the app's label is, appears the .log file "hs_err_pid****" (****- 4- or 3-digit number) that starts like this:

# A fatal error has been detected by the Java Runtime Environment:
# EXCEPTION_ACCESS_VIOLATION (0xc0000005) at pc=0x000084c1, pid=3548, tid=2840
# JRE version: 7.0_05-b06
# Java VM: Java HotSpot(TM) Client VM (23.1-b03 mixed mode windows-x86 )
# Problematic frame:
# C 0x000084c1
# Failed to write core dump. Minidumps are not enabled by default on client versions of Windows
# If you would like to submit a bug report, please visit:

    That's a native crash. That does not have to be related to the JRE, it just means the crash happened in a piece of native code and not in a piece of Java code. That could be a native component of the runtime, but more likely it happens in one of the many libraries that Minecraft uses. I would try upgrading your video and sound drivers to the latest versions if you have not already done that. I also had crash problems with Minecraft 1.0 at the time (after a random amount of playing time) and I solved it by removing the OpenAL DLL that is installed with Minecraft; it is very much outdated and generally a better version is already installed if you play any other games. If not, you can download the latest version here:

    For further assistance with your specific commercial product, refer to the company that created it for technical support. Or Or Google.
