My codeblock IDE have stopped working. When I compile a program
it raises the CPU usage to 99% and the machine freeses.
So I installed the eclipse IDE.
Now when I try to compile and run a program I get the error below:
1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9
**** Build of configuration Default for project ayiyeEmva ****
g++ -O2 -g -Wall -fmessage-length=0 -c -o ayiyeEmva.o ayiyeEmva.cpp
process_begin: CreateProcess(NULL, g++ -O2 -g -Wall -fmessage-length=0 -c -o ayiyeEmva.o ayiyeEmva.cpp, ...) failed.
make (e=2): The system cannot find the file specified.
make: *** [ayiyeEmva.o] Error 2
The problem is that I have never had such an error when I was using codeblocks for the past 3years, Dev-cpp and Quincy 2005. Only when I use eclipse C++ I got this error for the first time. Where ever I put the program the error persists.

Sorry, this reads like "My car ran out of petrol, so I went and bought a new car".
Is it just your current project that seems broken?
Can you create a brand-new project and check that everything works as you expect?
In other words, is the whole of C::B broken, or just your current project.
Did you at any point try to
- place any of your project files in C:\Program Files\codeblocks
- edit any of the standard include files to work-around some perceived problem
You might try to uninstall and re-install C::B if you think you might have damaged the installation.
Do you have an AV software running on your machine?
AV software can get touchy when new .exe files appear which don't match any known signatures.
Do you write your code as "admin" or as a normal user?
Bugs in your code running as admin could do more damage potentially.
It's not that installing Eclipse is a bad idea, it's worth it for the educational value.
But as a knee-jerk reaction to "My IDE stopped working, install a different IDE", it's a pretty awful. What are you going to do when the next mysterious lock-up happens?
TBH, the best place for this question is on the C::B forum itself.
