How do I decompile a DLL file?

I downloaded a DLL file that I would like to view the source code to see how it works. How do I decompile a DLL file?

Ashish PatelCommented:
There is no way decompiling a DLL back to its source code. The only thing which you will have is to decompile the code in Assembly language, which i think perhaps would be of no use to you. Rather you can hook dlls if you know the routines.
Ask the maker of the dll file for the source code. If they don't give it to you then it is protected property and if then there were a way of decompiling it you'd be breaching copyright laws. This site prohibits breaching copyright or any other laws, if you are unsure, read the EE Policy.
