Is it possible for someone to de-compile an .EXE file.  I'm looking to make a program with some ID's and PASSWORDS in it and I don't want anyone to get the code.  Thanks.  I will be programming in VB.Net 2005.  If it is possible to get the code from an EXE file, how will I be able to get around it.
