    Assuming you're using Windows....

    Pelles C
    (C-99 compliant, x86 and x64, full set of windows headers and libs,
    full suite of windows resource editors, best help file going.)

    Avoid: Turbo C and Dev C++... Fred Flintstone used better tools than those two.

    To keep with Tater's assumption that you are using Windows:

    Microsoft Visual C++ 2010 Express

    Ewww... Microsoft... (curse, spit)...

    Actually a good #2 if you are doing C++ as well as C... but not standards compliant and no resource editors.
