Eclipse and Force.com IDE not working

I installed Java, Eclipse, and Force.com IDE on my Windows 7 (32-bit) yesterday and when I tried to pull it up again today, I receive the following error: The Eclipse executable launcher was unable to locate its companion shared library.

I uninstalled Java and Eclipse and re-installed them and am still getting the same error. 

Is there something else I can try?

Sometimes there will be problem with the Windows 7 default unzipper program. You can try to unzip the Eclipse download using 7-zip or WinZip and see how it goes.
