    best/easies language for interfacing with hardware and WINx OS?

    first of I should mention that I have essentialy no coding skills in any programing language except for a very beginner level understanding of c. What I would like to know is what language would be the easiest to learn and also be capable of interfacing with hardware cpus and with windows, without too much hastle. This language also needs to be capable of being always synchronized with some sort of clock, and be able to record data input (input from the hardwares onboard controllers and from windows OS) and arrange it according to a timeline, in a format that doesnt take up to much hard disk space. It should be capable of running in the background and take up very little system resources as well.

    There are a few other considerations that you have not mentioned. Who will be writing this program? How much money is available to buy the development environment (including compiler)?

    C would otherwise be fine, although you may find it easier to get more documentation and a free development environment in a modernized version of C such as C++ or C#.
