It seems to be some problem relating to some file in C:\eclipse\configuration\org.eclipse.osgi\manifests directory.

To fix the problem you can delete this directoy or even the whole configuration directory so when u start eclipse again this directory will again be created and perhaps you will have to import all your existing projects from workspace directory and then re-configure the settings in eclipse for project class path etc.
I agree. Here's the link:
