Free C/C++ Compiler for Windows?

Hi, I need a free C/C++ compiler for \/\/Indows. I usually use Dev-C++, but lately its been acting strange, and not compiling my projects (even if its source code my friend gives me that compiled on his machine!). I'm looking for a good, free alternative. I have my Linux machine running with a compiler, but for Windows programming I'd prefer to be on my Windows machine

Thank you in advance.

Borland has a free compiler too. None of their IDE tools, but who needs IDE tools...
