When I try to start up Eclipse (I have just downloaded it and resolved a PATH issue with JDK) I am told an error has occurred.

As someone trying to learn coding, the log file of the error is going way over my head. I wonder if someone can help me troubleshoot this issue. Thanks.

This is the log file of the error.
