    Hi,

    As an Android Developer, I could give you steps need to set up the android environment.
    I hope you have the Latest Version of Eclipse with JDK.

    Then, you should download ADT plugins from http://developer.android.com/tools/sdk/eclipse-adt.html. The latest version is ADT.20.0.

    Just extract the downloaded ADT file. You could find the folder named "PLUGINS" and "FEATURES" which contains some files in it. Just copy all the files from the plugin folder and copy it inside the Plugin folder of eclipse. Also copy the files from features folder of adt and copy it inside the features folder of eclipse.

    Next, Download Android SDK File for windows from http://developer.android.com/sdk/index.html.

    Then, Open you Eclipse IDE, you could find WINDOWS-->PREFERENCES-->ANDROID-->Browse and link the downloaded ADK folder.

    THAT'S IT. Let me if you have anymore doubts. All the Best for you Android Development.

    Thanks,
    Arun
