    There are tools that claim that they can produce valid c from machine code but the loss of information ( ie meaningful variable names etc) will cripple any code produced and make it pretty illegible at best. my advice is forget it, you're seeking the holy grail of programming!
    As for windows programming in general start with a few web tuts (look in the directory) and then get a good book or two if you get on with it. Petzold's programming windows is a good bet for a windows starter book.
    Free the weed!! Class B to class C is not good enough!!
    And the FAQ is here :- http://faq.cprogramming.com/cgi-bin/smartfaq.cgi

    here amongst other places, decompilers are a dead end.
    Wave upon wave of demented avengers march cheerfully out of obscurity unto the dream.
