Error: Compiler not started: Access is denied

I'm getting the following messages whenever I try to build my project.

Information:Compiler dependency information on disk is corrupted. Rebuild required.
Information:Compilation completed with 1 error and 0 warnings
Information:1 error
Information:0 warnings
Error:Compiler not started: Access is denied

A little dialog box pops up titled "Make" with some progress on the compilation. This dialog box keeps popping up over and over again. I have tried forcing IDEA to shut down and restarting but that doesn't seem to solve anything. My project definition is stored in a maven pom. I can build the project just fine from the command line using maven.

Things were working fine and then out of nowhere this started happening. I was running a unit test, made a quick change, ran the unit tests again and now this is happening. Maybe I just shouldn't use unit tests! ;)

Anyway, if somone could help me out I would greatly appreciate it.

A complete reboot seems to have at least temporarily resolved this issue. Hopefully it won't come back...
