NullPointerException in eclipse in Eclipse itself at PartServiceImpl.internalFixContext

I have a problem about eclipse IDE, I can't open any file in my work space; if I try to open file, eclipse will alert the following error dialog

"An error has occurred. See error log for more details. java.lang.NullPointerException"


I go to see .log file in .meta at workspace and I see a paragraph in the file like this:

!ENTRY org.eclipse.jface 4 2 2557-04-09 11:40:49.422
!MESSAGE Problems occurred when invoking code from plug-in: "org.eclipse.jface".
!STACK 0
