 Bigger Bigger  Smaller Smaller  Reset Reset

When I try to open the Arduino IDE, it shows the splash screen but stops after that without any error.
"arduino.exe" shows up in the task manager for a brief moment but dissapears again.
I found many "solutions" for this problem, but none of them work.

I'm using Windows 7 ultimate (64bit) sp1, Java version 1.7.0_51 and arduino-1.0.5-r2.

I already tried the following things:

-removing and reinstalling the latest Java version.
-removing and reinstalling the latest Arduino IDE
(The standalone version used to work. I tried both the installer and the standalone version but none of them work)
-Running arduino.exe from the command line with "--l4j-debug".
(It doesn't create the log file, so I'm not sure what I'm doing wrong here)
-Running arduino.exe as an administrator in compatibility mode and/or with visual themes disabled.
-Installing the Arduino Enhanced Release 1.0.5 for Windows.
(Same problem as with the regular version)
-removing java and arduino IDE, running Ccleaner to clean up the registry and some files, reinstalling java and the IDE.

So it probably is a problem with Java, but I can't figure out what I'm doing wrong. Any ideas?
Thanks

Try the suggestion of renaming the data file it worked for me  For info on the solution.

It involved renaming the data file.

There have been so many people having this issue, I wonder why the compiler isn't fixed. Is this a bug in the compiler

I can't seem to find the arduino data folder, I guess it's not there because the IDE didn't make one yet.
Also, I don't get any errors (launch4j in this case) so I don't think it will fix my problem.

Remove the Arduino folder from your my documents. See if this helps.
