Force.com IDE install - Open Perspective

I installed the Force.com IDE on my Windows 7 machine.  I also installed the updates. I also re-booted after.

 

When I start the Force.com IDE, the title bar reads Force Provisioning.

Under the Window menu, there is no Open Perspective Option, only Window Preferences.

In Preferences under Force.com I have checked Display when Eclipse starts and Display when Force.com Perspective is opened.

 

Any one have any idea what the problem is?  How do I open the Force.com perspective?

I decided to try the other install option: install eclipse first, then add the force.com ide in.

I should add that I'm using Windows 7 64 bit, but I installed the 32 bit version of the Force.com IDE because I thought it would be less trouble.  Does anyone know how I can get the Force.com IDE to work on Windows 7 64 bit?
