What do you consider the best disassembler. I'm looking for one with lots of functions and options. What do you recommend?

Well, if you want lots of options and stuff - but very VERY high learning curve, then the old-time programmer/hacker's love SoftIce is for you. It's probably like 10 years old, but still the most powerful out there.

That program is so powerful, it can actually run in the background and jump in as windows crashes and give you the opportunity to "fix" whatever went wrong so that windows doesn't crash. It has a very interesting and unique interface that is hard to learn though.

... Holy $#!+ dude! It's friggin huge! Well, I found a SoftICE v4.05, and it's smaller, but I also found a SoftICE Suite v4.0 and it come's in 11 parts! How am I supposed to put it together?
Are these the latest versions and what's in the suite that's not in the other one?

SoftIce v4.05 is what I'm talking about. I'm not familiar with the suite.

Well, I got downloaded version 4.05, but I need a flippin' registration code to install it. I checked the internet, but the only code I found for v4.05 didn't work. I'm thinking of risking getting a cracked version...

Thanks anyway, but I got a registered version of SoftICE v4.05. But it's a pain in the @$$. Keeps crashing my computer and I have to restart.

What OS do you have? Since it's an old program is may only support 9x.

IDA Pro by Datarescue as Nexus mentioned is probably the best disassembler in the world.
There are some places where you can download the full version.
It has support for many processors and file formats,PE,MZ,ELF..
Its usually around 18-20 Megabytes.
Its the only tool you need for disassembling..

Win32 Disassembler by URSoftware is also pretty neat, disassembles 16/32-Bit code,has a nice real time debugger for 32-bit applications.
Displays resources,ordinals,exporte/imported API's and modules.

Sourcer for MS-DOS is not bad.
SoftICE is primarily used as a debugger.

I have Win98, and that's the version I got. The one for 9x or whatever.
BTW, can you look at what's in the RAM with IDA Pro?

I checked out IDA Pro, and it sucks! I think that's the worst disassembler I've seen!
