EpicMan is on a distinguished road
Notepad++ is my go-to text editor. It has syntax highlighting, regular expression find and replace, and some pretty nice text manipulation tools in the TextFX plugin. It also has a compare plugin which is helpful.

Visual Studio is the only compiler I can use on my work computer, but be warned that it doesn't support a lot of newer (C99) C programming things that make compiling newer Vanilla or anything based on it a major problem. Notably, VS does not allow variable length arrays, i.e.
int size = 80;
char text[size];

You have to make a constant expression for it to work, i.e.
#define size 80
char text[size];
#undef size
