You could create useful programs like you have mentioned in either Visual Basic or Visual C++.  You could also use Borland's Delphi (I'd call it Visual Pascal) or any of a number of other programming languages and environments.  If you're just beginning and don't have any programming experience, Visual Basic is probably easier to learn and build programs with.  The drawback with VB is larger run-time programs and slower execution.  Visual C++ is significantly more difficult to learn but gives you easier access to the Win32 functions and greater control of the resources you use.  The drawback is that you have to manage everything yourself or risk sucking up all of the memory on the system or causing a crash.

I'd suggest a trip to the local bookstore and see about some of the "Learn Visual Basic in 10 Minutes" or similar books as a good starting place.  Since you seem to be needing to learn both a language AND Windows, you really need to start with the language and move up from there.
