Eclipse Windows 7 Plugin Problems

Wow, Eclipse is really a piece of work. I wasted an hour trying to get it to behave reasonably with multiple plugins installed on Windows 7. Online forums were little help until I finally came across the suggestion to install Eclipse into a user directory, i.e. one that doesn't require administrator privileges. Finally fixed; what a waste of time!
