well, no one else bit.
c++ is actually a very useful and powerful language, used
in a great many problem domains. however, it is very complex,
and demands a good bit of expertise to use effectively. in the
hands of someone lacking that expertise, it is easy to develop
programs that fail in mysterious ways.
as a starting programmer, you'd be better off using a more
forgiving language, like, say, python.
