Well, it seems that you don't have/set the c++ mode.
M-x c++-mode
M-x font-lock-fontify-buffer

If it loads it than is ok, you have a problem with setting the right mode,
and you need something like
(setq auto-mode-alist
      (cons '("\\.\\([ch]\\|cc\\|cpp\\)$" . c++-mode)

Second, if you are using xemacs (as I do now) than class, friend, virtual
are considered types not keywords; I had to modify font-lock.el by hand
and make them keywords. Could be another way, but i don't know it.
goodf luck
