Hiya everyone! i appreciate you coming to view this :)
So, here is what happens:

I open up my minecraft.exe
i click login, and i am taken to the white "Mojang screen"
After a few seconds, a pop up comes up saying "Java (TM) Platform SE binary has stopped working"
The pop up then says "Windows is checking for a solution to the problem"
After a while, it says "Windows will notify you if a solution is available"
It then prompts me to close the program. I do so and minecraft crashes
How can i get Java (TM) Platform SE binary to work?

other details:
the only mod i have installed is optifine 1.5
when using minecraft magic launcher, the same error message appears

*******I would appreciate it if you only respond if you have an answer. I understand that many other people have this same issue, and would appreciate it if you dont post something saying "i have this same issue too"
Thanks

Well this is nothing to do with the mods, we know that much.

What version of Java do you have installed?

Go re-download Java from Oracle and re-install. If you have any Java error reports available to you, those would be helpful in solving your problem as well.
