Dev-C++ (which also *does* C) is hard to beat IMHO

If you really think you are ready for that stuff, start with a Windows
group. We only deal with standard here, not Windows, POSIX or any other
flavour of system specific stuff.

So it is not possible to do it in Visual Studio.NET IDE?

Not for the same price. Note that Code::Blocks is a good free IDE too.

I am the author of the lcc-win32 system, so my viewpoint is biased.

lcc-win32 offers you a windowed debugger, a resource editor, what
many of the other free tools do not offer.
A resource editor allows you to graphically design dialog boxes
and windows.

It is a C compiler with some extensions (operator overloading, generic
functions and others)

The IDE of lcc-win32 has a lot of features that you will only find
in much more expensive software: Spelling correction (mistyped words are
underlined in red), goto definition, software metrics, function list,
globals usage/function, object code cross referencing, grep/diff,
project management with automatic makefile generation and dependencies
analysis, and many other features.

lcc-win32 is not open source, it is just free for you to use. You can
download the binaries at

http://www.cs.virginia.edu/~lcc-win32.

Note that the size of the whole system is very small. The whole download
is only 5MB. There is a lot of documentation, and a tutorial that
teaches you how to use the system and the C language from the ground up.

Don't know if they're still doing it, but a couple of months back MS
were shipping preview copies of the next release of Visual Studio for
free.

OTOH, if you decide to use an lcc-based compiler suite, Pelles C offers
all that, also uses lcc as its core, and isn't written by a programmer
who has proved more than once, in this very newsgroup, that he
understands neither C nor the importance of language Standards very
well.
