Of course you can. GUI isn't property of programming language. You can create windows GUI app with windows API, but itsn't that easy like in Visual Basic.
If you plan create app with expanded GUI, i suggest that you should use C++ and some opensource GUI library.

You can make it with Win32 API in C++.

The Win32 API is *defined* in C.
Find yourself a copy of the Microsoft Win32 Programmer's Reference manual.

Save yourself a lot of time and hassle and learn C# and maybe VB for the .NET platform. The Win32 API is a monstrosity. That's why MS has spent the hundreds of m illions of dollars to make .NET. Download Sharpdevelop (free) and the MS .NET 2.0 Framework (free) and go at it.
