log file after NetBeans 6.8 crashes

When I start NetBeans 6.8 and select the File menu followed by the Open File enu item, the IDE crashes without warning.

First, I made sure that all old files related to Java and NetBeans were removed form disk.  I cleaned my registry to remove all old Java and NetBeans entries.

I installed Java SDK and NetBeans from this file: jdk-6u18-nb-6_8-windows-ml

After I started NetBeans and selected File and Open File, the attached log file was generated.

I got the idea here:
