Well, first of all then, you have to get yourself a nice development environment, and on Windows you have the best there is, that is Visual Studio. The good news is that it has a free version also, which you can get here:http://www.microsoft.com/visualstudio/en-us/products/2010-editions/visual-cpp-express .

C++ is a complex language and will take you a few years to master it. However, a good introduction seems to be this one http://osix.net/modules/article/?id=609 and pretty much any other tutorial for beginners. I would advice you not to rush into game development directly, but learn the basics first, one step at a time.

Not sure how your coding skills are atm. When i started and my first book was "Beginning C++ Game Programming" by Michael Dawson. Got this book done in 3 weeks with almost zero programming knowledge.

Funny thing is, this book is now recommended for the first years in my University.
