Description: From website:

"Reflector is a very powerful class browser, explorer, analyzer and documentation viewer for .NET. Reflector allows to easily view, navigate, search, decompile and analyze .NET assemblies in C#, Visual Basic and IL."

This is one of the most powerful .NET decompilers that you can't buy - just download :)
Many of the popular commercial tools achieving the same goal "suddenly" got a boost when this masterpiece of work saw a daylights (and besides that those are commercial, still have hard time with obfuscators).

Just give it a try, it will last literally five minutes - load some well known assembly of yours, choose target .NET language (!) and let'em work. Then compare it with the original.

You'll surely not forget this one.
