What JRE/JDK are you using?

Sounds similar to a problem I had recently, when I did an upgrade from an earlier build.
Have you tried explicitly pointing Eclipse to a specific JVM with the
-vm switch on your shortcut?
Like this...
C:\Eclipse\eclipse.exe -vm C:\j2sdk1.4.2\jre\bin\javaw.exe
Hope this helps
