Some of my software has recently been corrupted by an unknown cause, and I would like to know if there are any C++ decompilers out there, so I can fix the code.

There certainly are decompilers that will prodiuce C code.  Horrible C code, but C code none-the-less.  There may be some that produce C++ too.  Depending on the C++ implimentation, then may be able to tell when functions are member functions and may be able to detect exception information (to some extent).  They probably won't recreate templates, but instead seperate functions/classes.   But you can be pretty sure that the ouput is going to be nearly incomprehensible.

Just as a follow up, there are actually a few C++ decompilers that have worked quite well for me. Lesson of the day to the "expert" who said there isn't: what can be done can ALWAYS be undone.
