Your AMD/ATI video driver is crashing:

Fault Module Name: atio6axx.dll

Determine what video card you have and go *directly to the manufacturers website (ATI/AMD)* and download the latest driver:

Just doing Windows Update won't give you the latest and greatest drivers. You must go directly to your card manufacturers website to check for driver updates.
