Which?

I would suggest firstly is to make decision - what do you want to program, or write code for..? Cause different languages are good for different purposes, for example if you to write for mobile programming then Java would be used... and so on... All C languages are good as well as Java, the principles are mostly the same, the sintaxis are different.
It's difficult to suggest which is the best car..? Since it depends what are you going to use it for..? Same here, do not rush, think what you want to do and then go for it, all languages have tutorials, dedicated to language websites, forums, books and so on. If you love maths and you know it good programing is for you, not much of help though... but...
Good luck!

First you can learn basics from C++. When you got the basics,then is easy to go with other simmilar languages.

The problem with C++ is that it really is for hard core programmers. I don't think it is suitable for a novice to learn programming. The learning curve is just too steep. One of the .NET languages while quite powerful would be more suitable for a beginner and give the necessary introduction to modern programming concepts. Not only that but there is plenty of books and tutorials out there for the beginner. I don't think it matters too much which you chose between C# and VB.NET although C# probably has the most long term mileage in it and would be better if your ultimate goal is C++ programming as it has a similar syntax.

I would suggest then that you start with VB.NET it is rather more verbose than C# and easier for a beginner to understand. You can download the free edition from here. Visual Basic 2010 Express | Microsoft Visual Studio

Try going to WinBatch®, the batch language for Windows, your scripting solution. and download a copy of winbatch which is a very powerful batch programming language for windows. You can download a trial copy and give it a go. If you also download a load of the extensions you can get to control virtually anything on or in your PC or on the web.

One of the simplest programming languages is Pascal. It is good for start just to understand the principles. There are free implementations of the language like TurboPascal.
Later an object oriented language can be used like Delphi(based on Pascal), Java or C++ in ascending complexity.

Whatever programming language the most complex part of programming is interacting with the underlaying operating system (read/write files, display/output information and get user input).
The so called RAD (rapid application development) tools give the user ready to use blocks of code/functionality - Microsoft Visual Studio can be used for VBasic, C#, C++ and the Express Editions are free.
