A good IDE for C++ (free) that I have used is called Dev-C++ by Bloodshed Software. It has kind of a Microsoft Visual C++ feel to it, and it seems to work great. I have not had really any problems with it so far. You can find it here.
Please let me know if this is what you are looking for. I hope that I have been of some help.
