Confused with C++ Versions

I'm starting to study about C++, but I don't know what to study first... :(

What's the difference between:

1.) C++

2.) Visual C++

3.) Managed C++

4.) C++ .NET

5.) C#

6.) Visual C#

    C++ is the language.
    VC++ is a compiler.
    In C++.net you can write managed code and unmanaged code.
    The unmanaged code is like old code, while managed code is code written for the .net platform.

    C# and Visual C# are the same.
    C# is a compleatly different language, but has similarities with maneged C++ code.

    Managed C++ code is very messy, and therefor C# was invented. C# code is also compiled to the .net platform.

    study c++ and c for a couple years first. After that you will probably know which of the others (if any) you want to study.

    couple of years!?!?!!?!?!!?...well, may be it depends on you and your learning speed...

    and anyway, even if you study C++, you'll no doubt have to cover C first. I'm curious, are you choosing courses, or are you planning to self teach yourself?

    Try to look things up.

    I took this from wikipedia

    Microsoft Foundation Class Library (also Microsoft Foundation Classes, or MFC) is a Microsoft library that wraps portions of the Windows API in C++ classes, forming an application framework. Classes are defined for many of the handle-managed Windows objects and also for predefined windows and common controls.

    Yes, it will take 2-3 years before you can write decent programs and work as a professional programmers. It will take around 5 years to become a good programmer.
