EVALUATION The browser doesn't crash when it is started from a debugger such as Visual studio or using the ADPlus tool which comes with windbg. I've finally managed to get some call stack by instumenting the ssv.dll by inserting some MessageBox in the code and then attach debugger to the browser prior to the crash. The call stack doesn't show much. It only shows 1 frame: > ntdll.dll!7c911645() The output window of the debugger shows: (For brevity, I'm showing the output starting from about loading of the ssv.dll) 'iexplore.exe': Loaded 'C:\Program Files\Adobe\Acrobat 7.0\ActiveX\AcroIEHelper.dll', No symbols loaded. 'iexplore.exe': Loaded 'C:\WINDOWS\system32\msvcr71.dll', Symbols loaded. 'iexplore.exe': Loaded 'C:\Program Files\Java\jre1.6.0_02\bin\ssv.dll', No symbols loaded.

From the above, the ssv.dll was loaded way before the crash happened. The crash could only be reproduced with one user account on one machine in-house. After I've uninstalled all JRE's from the machine and reinstalled 6u2 b02 or reinstalled 5.0u11 followed by 6u2 b02, I couldn't reproduce the problem.
