Fiddling with .EXE files


NTFS Stoner
ok i need to have a look inside an .EXE file i have.
reason being i kinda had to update an exe file and it has spyware in it as it aint all that legal (ahem).

The file is a work around on a no cd crack, now can i use anything to look in this exe file and stop it creating a file in my system folder. if i can stop this file being created i wont have the spyware problem :)

Thanks G.

Sure it's possible, but only if you disassemble the exe and change the raw assembler code. And I kinda guessed you don't know assembler, right?

There is a little chance the filename of that file is hard-coded into the exe file. In that case you can change the name of that file and voila, the real file won't be created. The string will probably contain spaces (like "f i l e n a m e . e x t") so look for that. You'll need a hex-editor btw, Notepad won't do by far.
