    Not all are in exe format in fact there are scripts virus, batch virus....
    If you want to change their extentient then, make it visible first by uncheching the file extention hidden option (tool->Folder options and then select the view tab). When extention is visible, rigth clik on the file.exe and change its extention.

    That's all !

    Why dont u use antivirus ?

    Do you mean you wann change the code of this virus. You'll make another virus so.
    That's possible. You can dissassemble this exe file using Windasm for exemple. you can execute it step by step and event change it's code.

    I hope I helped , so please push the helped me button.

    Thanks.

    Re: how to change .exe files?

    As first step you need to setup a virtual machine in a clean PC, use Virtual PC from Microsoft from FREE and install it, then install a OS like WinXP.

    Then you can download a debugger like the good OllyDbg (http://www.ollydbg.de/) or SoftICE (ring 0 debugger you can also look into the driver code and make kernel code examination) and put into the installed virtual machine, then copy the virus file into the installed OS inside the virtual machine and then start to play with the debugger. You can dissassemble the virus code and then know how the virus work. If you get infected no problem, simply format your virtual machine and then restart the work. Just take care that debugger will execute the code step by step then if you run the exe file into the debugger you will get infected. WinDasm make simple plain disassembling without execute the file, also other best disassembler is IDA (http://www.hex-rays.com/idapro/).

    If you're already infected no matter about to install the virtual machine :D, use directly the debugger or the disassembler on the infected file, I've do this lot of time into infected machine to discover the virus file and then know the virus behaviour.

    Of course changing the exe may be a not simple task, some virus have morphing code (code is self changed during execution and this will take some time in decryption and understand how it works, but sometime the way is simple encryption and easy to do), other aren't compressed or encrypted then is more easy to do the debug work. Plain disassembling of a encrypted/compressed virus is unuseful because you've first to decrypt or unpack the virus to see the clean original code, this task can be do with a debugger.

    But at least I've a question, if your purpose is know how the virus work the debugger approach can be a valid way, otherwise simply take a good antivirus and go on (e.g. AVG Free).

    Good luck
    Pow

    Re: how to change .exe files?

    actually you can't change anything in an exe file .

    you just can open it or delete it no other options .

    but if the Viruses is the problem you do the following :

    1- use an antivirus program i'd prefer norton symantic .

    2- do not open any suspected file unless you scan it first .

    3- every period you do scanning on the whole computer like , weekly , monthly

    something like that .

    4- watch out from Email , do not open any Email from a person you don't know .

    if you do that i think it is enough .

    5- this is a most important thing is to keep your antivirus UPDATED .
