Sorry, double post...

Visual C++ Express is a good choice. A large user base so help is at hand and is certainly good enough for a learner.

 

I personally recommend, if you are already familiar with C, getting a book such as SAMs "Teach yourself C++", then spend some time writing a text-based game and then move on to a more indepth book such as Herbert Schildt's C++ Complete Reference.  Then consider perhaps Windows API & GDI or even DirectX for graphics.

 

APIs will come and go, whereas languages tend to stick around for a lot longer, so keep sharp your knowledge of C++ more than anything else.
