Why have Eclipse and Spring Tool Suite stopped working on my Windows 7 64 bit machine?

Hi:

Up until a day or so ago, Eclipse (Juno) and Spring Tool Suite were working fine on my Windows 7 64 bit machine.

Both Eclipse and STS are 64 bit installations.

Now, neither of the start up.
In Eclipse, the Splash screen flashes briefly, and then nothing.
In STS, I see the attached screen shot.

I have no idea why these stopped working. I did not install anything new.
Did something get corrupted on me?
I've got to figure it's something that's shared between the two installations (Java/JRE)?

As a caveat, my Android Studio stopped working as well.

What could be causing this?
I really want to avoid having to reinstall these 3 applications.

Thoughts?

Thanks,
JohnB

Both Eclipse and STS (which is just a customised version of Eclipse) should write info to a log file (location of which should be the directory where they are installed). The info in this may be helpful, see if you can find this/these and post.

Also, the screenshot that you mention didn't get attached.

The log sometimes is stored in your home folder

I looked for the log file and did not find it.
What is the log file called?

Here is  the screenshot.

Juno is out of date, Kepler is the latest eclipse. There was a bug with earlier versions that was solved. As a work around this may help

add the line
-XX:-UseCompressedOops
to the end of your eclipse.ini file

OK. I will try this. But, as I mentioned earlier, this has been working fine for several weeks and suddenly Eclipse, Android Studio and STS stopped working for me.
