Force.com IDE not working

I downloded the force.com IDE and installed it in my office pc. For creating a project i entered the username, password, token and environement, set the proxy server and clicked next. On the screen where it shows the progress, as soon as it gets to the point where it shows "preparing to fetch component metadata" it gets stuck. Nothing happens after that and i should kill the IDE to exit from it. Please advise what to do.




Are you sure you need the token?


Sometimes it helps to do a fresh install of the IDE.  Try whitelisting your IP address and do it without the token (although I have used the token many times with success).




Thanks Dave, but unfortunately its the same result. Its hung at the same point. I reinstalled the IDE fresh and then whitelisted my IP and when I try to create the project its stuck at the same place.
