and if you meant "doesnt run in dos" as a compiler that doesnt use the command line, your out of luck, there are none for c++(or probably any language).

what you want is a ide or a text editor, the only good free one for windows i can think of is dev c++, at http://www.bloodshed.net/devcpp

Compiler = program that compiles code

Linker = program that links object files into an executable file

IDE = program or suite of programs that allows users to manipulate the above two devices easily, normally in a graphical manner.

You're most likely referring to wanting an IDE that runs under Windows or whatever graphical OS you happen to be using. In that case, I recomment Dev-C++ (a product of Bloodshed Software [address in first reply]). It's good for beginners, and you can always graduate to *shiver* VC later. Not at all to say that Dev-C++ isn't capable of being advanced. VC just tends to be more standard.

Later,
ZE.

EDIT - Miswording, and sorry I wasn't the first to explain all that stuff. Just didn't read all the way through the reply above me.
