    i m using symantec anti-virus product and i need to access the machine
    registry to get the pattern date. Using .net 2003, i m able to retrieve the
    registry. However retrieving the registry shows only the HEX and DEC value
    which is *not understood by human logic*.

    An eg in HEX is 20D213.
    An eg in DEC is 2150931.

    I ask symantec to *translate* the above values for me and they send me a
    DecodeVDB.exe tool written by their team. I believe the algorithms is listed
    inside the exe file.

    Is there a way which i can *SEE* the algorithm, so that i can code it in my
    ..net 2003 program ?

    Is there a tool to uncompile the exe file ? Or does anyone happen to know
    symantec algorithm on translating signature pattern date ?

  2. Download .NET Reflector from http://www.aisto.com/roeder/dotnet
    It will allow you to decompile any .NET assembly
