Try again:

Download and install Oracle JDK version 1.8, check that it is really there:

java -version
javac -version

If your Windows is a 64 bit system, please note that you need to have Eclipse and Java with matching bitness (both either 64 bit or 32 bit).

You may be better off by getting the Eclipse installer and using it to install Eclipse proper. The correct Java is also needed here.
