When I start IntelliJ IDEA, it displays the startup
screen and will freeze until I press ctrlaltdel and
end the task.

I hope that you guys can help me on how to fix the problem.

It looks like you've got some busted fonts. You'll need to find which
one is causing the problem and remove it.

Just saw this in another thread. You may want to try the test program
listed in this Knowledge Base article to see if it is a font that's
causing the problem and which one.

I compiled the program and removed the fonts that are causing the program to crash but Idea still refuses to start up.

Here is the log file:

And how do I fix the first exception?

First exception is not a problem at all since it's just information internal
profiling API is not enabled. BTW the stacktrace is removed from the log
(so it doesn't confuse users anymore) in 5.0.1
