You can use notepad to edit some of them, like config.sys, but I think a large majority are encrypted in some way.

there isn't really "encryption" .. it's just that it's machine code .. depending on what you are trying to you a hex editor or disassembler should suit your needs.

what are you trying to do?

If you don't know how to read Hex then you will probably have a hard time.
