    Well that's true. Since C++ is so hard. The pointers in C++ can give you a headache even if you know C++. I'd start with something easier like Java, PHP or VB (really easy). Then when you get the feel for it you can move on to C++.

    I would say, go for C++.
    It gives you a good understanding of programming as a whole. Once you're good at that, JAVA seems really easy.

    I'd go for C, because once you've learned that C++ becomes a lot easier.

    VB is not a bad language to learn, but a structured language like C/C++ will be of more benefit than a form based one

    I would not learn C first. C++ is different in many ways, and you will spend most of your time trying to unlearn stuff in C, while trying to make sense of C++.

    Though C# might be another option for you after C++.
