.NET reflector is a program which can do that.

Edit:
but keep in mind that copying code from copyrighted softwares is most likely a crime.

Also the code might be obfuscated which means it's unreadable.

Here you go:

http://reflector.red...m/download.aspx

Here is another great link which can be very helpful when browsing the Internet:
http://www.google.com

Btw. I'm not sure if that works for any other .exe files than those which use .NET framework. At least the name is .NET Reflector...
So if the exe you want to decompile is made in some other environment like Java, it might not work.
