gcc is free, and ported to a wide variety of OSes, including Windows. The best Windows port of gcc is the TDM build.

You can also get the free express edition of Microsoft Visual C++

Also, what is considered to be good C++ has evolved considerably over the years. So, get a recently published and warmly recommended text book (*). And be prepared for a long learning curve.

(*): While AJW's book would score on both my criteria, it does not appear suitable for beginners to C++. I'd suggest C++ Primer or Accelerated C++

I would recommend Visual C++/Studio Express edition too!
You can learn a great deal with this.
