You need to get yourself a compiler. If you get Visual Studio 2008 Express or Dev-C++ (both free downloads), you'll notice a code editor's built in.

Yes, but you'll need to download a compiler to connect to it because Notepad++ doesn't come with a compiler to the best of my knowledge. The editor is good though, and supports highlighting for C++.
