    If you can't figure out how to download and install a compiler then, with all due respect, programming is NOT for you!
    Have a nice day.

    Install virtualbox first.. and then install Windows XP in it.
    Once Virtualbox is up and running with XP, you can then install C, C++ or whatever you want and enjoy everything in a virtual environment.. without risking your OS.

    (I you r a layman, make sure you don't boot ur PC with XP or else you'd even lose Win 7).

    1.) Get yourself a compiler, such as Microsoft Visual C++ or Code::Blocks 
    2.) Write your code in the IDE and compile it.
    3.) Profit

    I advice you determine whether you want to learn C or C++ first. Although many will argue the differences are only subtle, I advice you to learn C++ which practices better, more modern programming techniques. 

    My friend, John Runchey is an excellent teacher for the C programming language if you decide to go that route instead.Good luck!
