Yeah I have learned VB(visual Basic) over the last few years. Its pretty cool and can prove useful. But saying that I have determined programming is not my thing

Yes.

But if you are looking for the types of games/animations you usually find embedded in web pages,then you would be better off looking into Flash(although its not a programming language).

i know VB to a moderate extent and it tried to move to C++ but i found it extremely difficult. I didnt have too much trouble with C#. if you were going to learn VB, you'd have to get a copy of VB.NET 2005. Microsoft give away a free version. Its called VB.NET Express. Its a slightly cut down version. Learning .NET would be more advantagoues (sorry for the spelling). Vista and Vienna will be based upon it and learning VB6 and moving to .NET is difficult - most pro's found it taxing. I can find the link for express if you want.

probably - its more future proof and would lay down the best foundations
