New to Eclipse Kepler and setting up a windows 7 system to run with MinGW. All works with C++ with the exception that I cannot get rid of

Symbol 'cout' could not be resolved
Symbol 'endl' could not be resolved
Symbol 'std' could not be resolved

errors appearing whenever I start this

#include <iostream>
using namespace std;
int main ()
cout << "Hello World" << endl;
return 0;

project, or any other, from scratch. The errors go away as soon as I save the file, clean or build but they just annoy me and I've spent way more hours on solving this than I should. Have tried everything I've read in the many threads on the subject but to no avail. I note that if I save or clean the file at any point before <iostream> and then continue typing then the errors still occur. However, if I save or clean immediately after <iostream> then the errors do not occur when I continue typing.

It's as though the act of saving or building allows <iostream> to be found and yet all my includes seem to be correct. Any ideas greatly appreciated as I've now run out of things to try.
