Eclipse hangs on start up after proxy configuration change

The problem appeared after I had changed the proxy settigns of IDE in Preferences/General/Network Connections. After that eclipse started sticking on loading workbench. The following solution solved the problem:

  1. Go to your eclipse installation folder
  2. Switch to configuration/.settings
  3. Open file org.eclipse.core.net.prefs
  4. Set all the boolean properties related to proxy to false
  5. Save the changes
  6. Start Eclipse again
This solution has worked for me. Hope it will work for you as well.
