Cool, I remember taking a C++ class in High School and it was really fun. Not only will playing with programming will boost your problem solving skills, but it also teaches you to understand the basic logic of many other programming languages.

Anyway, it looks like this might be a good start:

http://www.cplusplus.com/doc/tutorial/

You could even download the whole thing as a pdf. That website also seems to have a special forum section for beginners:

I haven't done much C++ since college besides a contract stint at Microsoft over 10 years ago.

What's your programming background like?

If you are starting from almost nothing besides perhaps basic scripting, here's what I'd recommend:

1) learn plain old C for syntax, structured programming, compiling, linking, etc.
2) learn OOP concepts.  In my experience one of the pitfalls of C++ are "C" people who learn just enough OOP to make a serious mess.  Learn good design habits and avoid problems later
