The mikroe.com website has a decent range of compilers that are fairly well documented
However, the quality of their compilers is arguable.

oh ? maybe not worth me getting into their version then, I notice their english leaves a bit to be desired. Is there a better well explained compiler out there ?

I dont know what quality it is, but i downloaded it and it looks nice but a free version is limited to only 2KB of code.

I use their basic compiler and it's ok but then I do real basic, basic (pun intended  :D) I was told that it did have some issue but that their C compiler is better

If you need a C compliler why not use gcc? Or cygwin? I've also heard great things about DevC++ for windows. For the stuff you'll be doing there's pretty much no difference between C and C++. C++ has a ton of stuff that C doesn't, but you probably won't need to learn those. I never did anything complicated in the course I took at school, and the only big differences I found were not being able to pass variables by reference, and having to use printf instead of cout.

Of course "complicated' is a subjective term. I pretty much walked through that class playing games during the lectures and learning the stuff myself from books.
