The posts are very relevant (same crash as you are experiencing) and raise some interesting issues
to verify on your own system.
Thing is: the crash occurs in "msvcrt.dll
", which is a part of Windows. It is very unlikely that PMS can cause a crash that deep in the system, plus if it did, the forums would be full of similar reports.
Time to verify what changed since you started getting these crashes. E.g., did you change Java versions (upgrade from Java 6 to Java 7)?
Also notice that the last poster
had to remove a trojan to get things working again.
