In case the above doesn't work: http://postimg.org/image/z1ztmvry7/

All I did was go to switch workspace and then select the exact same workspace I was already in. Eclipse EE then turned completely fray like in the image. I even tried downloading a new version but it still looks the exact same.

I assume the IDE's section is the right place for this? I was very unsure of where to post this.

Yes, this (IDEs) is the right place to post this.

Sometimes this error occurs because of an intermittent error. If that's the case, closing Eclipse and re-opening solves the problem. That doesn't seem to be the case here.

The other cause is that your workspace is corrupt or refers to a plugin that got messed up. Try clicking details in case there is anything useful in there. If not, you'll need to create a new workspace. You can copy the projects from the old workspace folder to the new workspace folder and import them as Eclipse projects. (Or if they are in version control, you can just check them out again.)

This is all that shows once you click "details":

"An internal error occurred during: "reload maven project".
java.lang.NullPointerException"

Try this:
Close eclipse.
Navigate to your "workspace" folder
Ensure the setting on your OS to view hidden files is turned on
Identify and delete the .metadata directory
Restart eclipse
Import project
