EXCEPTION_ACCESS_VIOLATION in Jinitiator and IE crashes

The Environment
Apps Version :
Jinitiator Version :
Internet Explorer Version : 6

The Issue
One of our end users was receiving a very strange error while using jinitiator. The Internet explorer window would crash (close by itself) after creating a file HS_ERR_PID<####>.log on the desktop, where #### stands for the Process ID of the f60webmx session.

This error is intermittent and not easily reproducible. Moreover, the user would have to redo his/her work and hence this issue was turning out to be very vexing indeed.

The error log is as below:

An unexpected exception has been detected in native code outside the VM.
Unexpected Signal : EXCEPTION_ACCESS_VIOLATION occurred at PC=0x6D043D1AFunction name=Java_sun_java2d_loops_DefaultComponent_IntIsomorphicCopy

Initial Troubleshooting
Uninstalling and reinstalling jinitiator did not work. So, probed in Metalink to find out whether it is a known issue.

Found only one relevant hit in Metalink - Doc ID: 422761.1 - for this issue.

The Cause
As per the Note 422761.1, "This is a work station hardware issue related to a device driver associated with usually video cards. It also could cause by other device drivers."

The Solution
Again, as per the Note 422761.1, there are 2 solutions.

Solution 1
1. Add the following parameter to your Jinitiator Java Runtime Parameters:2. Control Panel > Open Jinitiaitor (or whatever version) > [Tab] Basic > Enter the following in your Java Runtime Parameters field:
3. Click Apply
4. Open your browser, then clear browser cache, and test.

Solution 2
To add to the environment:
1. Start->Control Panel->System
2. Click the Advanced Tab
3. Click the Environment Variables button
4. Click the New button
5. For Variable name:_JAVA_OPTIONS
6. For Variable value -Dsun.java2d.noddraw=true [or -Dsun.java2d.d3d=false ]
7. Click OK

Followed solution 1 mentioned above and Voilà, the issue is resolved.

I am really not sure what the problem is with SQLTOOLS since I have not worked with it. I had faced this issue in Jinitiator, which is the Java Applet used to connect to Oracle Applications. Sorry that I can't help you out.
