ERROR: A fatal exception has occurred. Program will exit.
I've been playing minecraft for a year perfectly, I started it this morning and gave me this error in a dialouge box. I tried running it with a modded, a vanilla, and no .minecraft folder at all. Always gives me this error! Please help!

Press enter, wait 5 seconds, then attempt to type in the cmd box, if you can't type continue waiting, if you can type, then close the cmd and go to your desktop, then copy paste everything from the "javaDebug" file in this thread.

Obviously, have you made sure you have no viruses?
Did you do anything different or make any changes just before this issue cropped up?

Go to "My Computer", then right click in the background of the window and select "properties", then choose "System protection" from the list on the left of the window, then select "System Restore" and continue through that process, make sure you select a date from before this problem started happening.

Can you post computer specifications or a dxdiag report?
Also next time start a new thread, instead of hijacking this one.

I usually just shut my PC down when it wasn't working and then opened it first thing because hey, maybe it just hasn't hit the error yet? Retarded logic, I know, but it seemed to work. Then, some times, it wouldn't work and then 45 minutes later BOOM! good and working. I found no rhyme or reason to this until I closed my browser to restart and hit MC by accident and, lo and behold, it opened. Then I opened my Chrome again, tried to open another MC and got the error, closed it and MC worked like a dream.
NO clue why this works, just seems to. Give it a shot and see if it works for you.
P.S. - I just copied this and then closed my browser and it worked, opened it, pasted this message and was greeted with a virtual machine error.
Hope this helps /:
EDIT: ... and now it's working with my browser open as long as I keep the original one open... what?

It looks like you set some java options that are wrong within the java control panel.
If you remove those, it should function again.

Don't hate on Growlithe pretending to be a blue tiger. It wasn't my idea :(.
