Have you read the Forum FAQ (under the Free IDE section)?

No program is the best. You'll find some programs better than some other. So I guess you'll have to try them.

As raptorstrike stated, devcpp is a very good program - and has everything you'll want to start C/C++ programming.

Yours,

I never managed to get dev c++ working, but Microsoft viual studio .net is great. Along with the book Microsoft visual c++.net step by step. If you know where to look you can download the program, but its pretty big.

I strongly suggest Dev-C++. It's lightweight, easy to use, and has enough "bells and whistles" to make it fun to use. Grabbing updates and libraries is as easy as tools->Check for Updates/Packages. The built in editor isn't wonderful, but it gets the job done (auto-indents, smart indents, spaces for tabs, syntax highlighting, etc, etc). Plus it uses the GNU gcc compiler which is very good. In one of the books I'm currently reading (Game Programming All in One) the author really seems to favor dev c++ and gcc (and C over C++, but not everyone's perfect [grin]). It's definitely worth a look. I won't even bother posting a link to it, searching google for dev c++ works just fine.
