The article below isn't specific to Vista, but it still might be worth checking out. Although the primary error file isn't the same, it involves replacement of the "mscvcrt.dll" file using a Windows disc.
Hope this helps.
Whenever I open up a new window in any way in IE, I get an error saying ssvagent.exe - entry point not found. It also says "The procedure entry point_resetstkoflw could not be located in the dynamic link library msvcrt.dll."
Then once I hit okay this pops up:
Java? Platform SE binary has stopped working
A problem caused the program to stop working correctly. Windows will close the program and notify you if a solution is available
What do I do? It keeps closing my programs down.
I have an HP Pavilion dv6338se running vista. I tried uninstalling Java and reinstalling it, several times, and ran my antivirus, etc.
I haven't rebooted since this happened, because when I searched for the error, I found a lot of topics about having trouble booting up due to a similar error.
Thanks in advance
