Code::Blocks Newby

I just downloaded codeblocks-13.12mingw-setup.exe.  I want to write a simple Hello World application.  Exactly what are the steps to do this?  I'm also getting a pop-up stating GNU GCC is missing.  Where can I download this?

Please note I'm asking this question because I'm not familiar with this particular IDE.

"The solutions and answers provided on Experts Exchange have been extremely helpful to me over the last few years. I wear a lot of hats - Developer, Database Administrator, Help Desk, etc., so I know a lot of things but not a lot about one thing. Experts Exchange gives me answers from people who do know a lot about one thing, in a easy to use platform." -Todd S.

note, for a newbie visual studio express normally is a much simpler way to learn c or c++. in the ide you would create a new empty console project and add a new .c file to the project. then you can edit your code. because of the .c extension, the build would use the ansi c compiler as default.
