Well, first of all, I suggest you wait for a few more responses, I'm a beginner. I do read a shitload on this site so I do feel like I know some basics but I'm still new.
The general consensus is that specialized programs, like a lot of the ones at this site, are for intermediate to advanced weightlifters who already have some good weight on their lifts (nearing 200 lbs bench press, prolly 300 squat, 350 deadlift, I'm pulling these numbers out of my ass but you get the point). If you do something basic that you like, it'll be OK.
First, make sure your diet is in order. Without diet, you won't see any serious gains.
Then read these two threads:
If you're not up for that, just keep a good diet in order, and go lift heavy, and lift big compound movements (chin-ups, military presses, chin-ups, rows, bench press, squat, deadlift). You can do a split like,
Monday: Upper body
Tuesday: Lower body
Thursday: Upper body
Friday: Lower body
Sat + Sun: Off
Upper body you can do bench press, rows, bicep curls, and tricep extensions. Lower body you can do squats, deadlifts, and calf presses. Then on thursday you can do military presses, chin-ups, bicep curls and tricep extensions. And on friday, squats, deadlifts, and calf presses again (once you start lifting really big weights and you get older, I hear it's not good to squat and deadlift twice a week, but I think it's OK for you now, I squat and deadlift three times a week).
3 sets of 8-10 for the first 6-8 weeks and then 6 sets of 4-5 on the next 6-8 weeks should bejust fine.
BUT MOST IMPORTANTLY, tweak with it yourself, and go out there and lift and see what works and what doesn't. Just keep in mind to have a good diet, to always work legs (squats and deadlifts should be staples), and don't overwork yourself by doing a lot of reps, a lot of sets, not taking enough time between sets, etc.
Good luck, don't forget to read those articles, they're helpful.
