Hey guys,
I know c++ and have made several programs for myself but the way i leanred I did everything in Direct X which as you probably know can hinder system performance the way its rendering. I was wondering if you could point me to any good guides on GUI programming with like.jpgs and .bmps and so on.

This is the best way to search the MSDN

You should look at some online tutorials, get a good book, etc. When you need help, then go to the MSDN. It really is a savior.

Maybe Jeffrey Richter's Advanced Windows?
I would personally probably stick with online tutorials.

Maybe check out some stuff at http://www.neurophys.wisc.edu/comp/wprog.html
