I wouldn't, unless your question is actually about the C programming
language.  (comp.lang.c tends to be rather picky about topicality.)

Try one of the Windows groups, possibly
comp.os.ms-windows.programmer.win32, or perhaps one of the microsoft.*
groups.

Or you might consider installing the Cygwin environment, which gives
you a Unix-like environment under Windows.  See www.cygwin.com for
more information.
