Hello ongngochoang,

The 'encrypted' part of the string is Base64 encoded and decodes to: "C'est pas facile !". Which is french for "It is not easy !".
The base 64 part is "Qydlc3QgcGFzIGZhY2lsZSAhCg==". The other characters seem to specify the codepage of the contents and some additional length data.

You can decode this using any default Base64 decoder, for example: http://www.opinionatedgeek.com/dotnet/tools/Base64Decode/Default.aspx
