    Ok Thanks. Are there any decent tutorials on this? Is it really hard?

    Can be for the beginner. Check out the links in the sticky for links/books. I'd recommend learning how to make windows using the API and resources. It's not that hard, but you'll get used to using dialogs, edit boxes, buttons and such. From there you can start learning asynchronous sockets and they should be pretty easy to put in your code.
