Try to use the following :-

   C1 = 52845;   {Used for encryption  Master Password string}
           C2 = 11719;
           Key = 1234;

        { Standard Decryption algorithm - Copied from Borland}
        function Decrypt(const S: String; Key: Word): String;
          I: byte;
          Result[0] := S[0];
          for I := 1 to Length(S) do begin
            Result[I] := char(byte(S[I]) xor (Key shr 8));
            Key := (byte(S[I]) + Key) * C1 + C2;

        { Standard Encryption algorithm - Copied from Borland}
        function Encrypt(const S: String; Key: Word): String;
          I: byte;
          Result[0] := S[0];
          for I := 1 to Length(S) do begin
            Result[I] := char(byte(S[I]) xor (Key shr 8));
            Key := (byte(Result[I]) + Key) * C1 + C2;
