I was wondering if I could use Demoshield to open a .dbd file from a game I bought.

Yes, you can use the Launch Demo action to launch another demo (.DBD).

I have successfully opened .dbd files in the designer as well. It is suprising how many don't have password protection.

PS. I sometimes have to monitor my temp folder to grab the dbd file.

Have fun.

So I can open the dbd file in Demoshield and extract resources (like pictures and icons)?

Oh yes. You can grab the stuff by exporting it with your resource manager. Be wary of any copyright or protection stuff though.

I have found the ones included in product packages like a scanner setup or company tutorials to be very valuable for insight on different ways of structuring my own demoshield productions (ie. action flows, scene progression, etc.).

Some however are only good for a laugh.
