Free C/C++ compiler (win32) through:
gcc/g++ on cygwin
or with the ide

And of course any *NIX will come with gcc/g++ pre-installed.

But learning C/C++ right off the bat makes for bad programming habits 
and loss of hair.  I would still recommend getting down the basics of 
programming with Python and then moving onto C or C++ (especially if you 
are learning on your own).  Of course that is if these languages suit 
your project better.
