In my opinion:

OO stuff - The OO Soapbox
Hundreds of links and articles organized by topic and by language

http://www.codeguru.com is the best place for MFC stuff (source code and articles, mostly fairly advanced).  They also have a links page which lists other link sites

The place to start is http://www.cetus-links.org - don't get overwhelmed by the amount of sites, just start with some tutorials.

I maintain a site with OO tips at http://www.kinetica.com/ootips - I hope you'll find it useful.

I would also like to recommend reading some books about OO. I recommend that you start with Robert Martin's "Designing Object Oriented C++ Applications Using The Booch Method" and Gamma et al. "Design Patterns". I have more detailed book recommendations at http://www.kinetica.com/ootips/bboks.html .
