Borg Freeware, open-source disassembler for Windows.
OllyDbgA 32-bit assembler level analysing debugger for Microsoft Windows. Emphasis on binary code analysis makes it particularly useful in cases where source is unavailable. The program is a shareware, but you can download and use it for free.
Professional Interactive
A customizable Win32 user mode debugger/disassembler. It operates at the Intel x86 instruction level and therefore at the lowest level where your program executes. The debugger fully supports Microsoft .NET managed processes and seamlessly allows interop or mixed-mode debugging.
PEDasmFreeware, Open Source disassembler for Windows and Linux.
PV-PHPOnline x86 Disassembler.
REC REC - Reverse Engineering Compiler or decompiler. It reads an executable file, and attempts to produce a C-like representation of the code and data used to build the executable file. It is portable because it has been designed to read files produced for many different targets, and it has been compiled on several host systems.

The Portable Executable
File Format from Top
to Bottom
The official Microsoft specification of the PE file format is rather vague and alone does not provide enough information. This article is meant to address that problem. It contains a thorough explanation of the entire PE file format, along with descriptions of all the necessary structures and source code examples that demonstrate how to use this information.
