Gcc C/C++ Long Time Compile Problem RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hi,

    I am a software developer. I have a problem with Windows 10 and GCC. Before I could compile my projects in a short time, But now, for example, small projects can compile in extremely long time ( Before: ~10sec. Now: 3-4 min.) 

    I reinstalled the compiler, I updated Windows, nothing changed. I research on the internet, there are viruses related to the program. I'm just using Windows Defender. I brought him inactive, but nothing changed. Please help me.

    My System:

    Intel Core i7 + 480GB SSD + 16GB Ram

  • Hello,

    if you have already read about viruses, you should analyze your computer with an antivirus software. Windows Defender is not enough.

    Have you checked the Task-Manager, if there is another programme that uses a lot of CPU and disk operations while you are compiling your project?

    This here is the forum for Visual Studio Languages. For help about GCC, you should ask in!forum/

    Regards, Guido

  • Hello,

    I checked Task manager but Cpu load under %10 when compiling.

  • In Task manager, look at Performance tab. While you compile, is there prolonged high disk activity? Check Windows event log for disk or controller errors, or other clues.
