good books for beginning windows programming?

ok i recently got malware and found out that my malware scanner took forever to scan because the malware downloaded a bunch of files into my local service and network service folders. i had no ideas that these system protected folders existed. in light of this new found ignorance, i now want to learn more about windows, from the basics functions of what certain things do to the more programmer specific stuff.

i'm normally a ubuntu user. i first read the "ubuntu pocket guide" to learn more about ubuntu and how everything functions in general. then i read "Understanding UNIX/LINUX Programming: A Guide to Theory and Practice" to get the more programming specific things.


are there are good books that are the windows equivalent of the two book i mentioned above? basically one good book to get a general understand of how windows works and another for programming specific things. any recommendations?

    Search on amazon.com for Charles Petzold, He wrote a huge book on programming windows applications from the ground up. It is an older book, but I still find it very useful, it is my go to book for learning how to program windows applications. :) It also includes a CD-ROM with the example code in his book. His book is written all around his code examples which is a big plus.
