This is the Class I use.

The procedure is simple:

Using the encKey you want, encrypt the password in your application.
Save the result in the Database (string value).
Retreive the string from the DB.
Decrypt it in the applciation using the same key.
Imports System.Security.Cryptography
Imports System.IO

Public ClassEncryptionHelper
    Private Shared myEncKey As String = "Use An EnCryPTION KeY"
    Private Shared key() As Byte = {}
    Private Shared IV() As Byte = {&H12, &H34, &H56, &H78, &H90, &HAB, &HCD, &HEF}

    Public Shared Function Decrypt(ByVal stringToDecrypt As String, Optional ByVal sEncryptionKey As String = "") As String
        If sEncryptionKey = "" Then sEncryptionKey = myEncKey
        Dim inputByteArray(stringToDecrypt.Length) As Byte
        Try
            key = System.Text.Encoding.UTF8.GetBytes(Left(sEncryptionKey, 8))
            Dim des As New DESCryptoServiceProvider()
            inputByteArray = Convert.FromBase64String(stringToDecrypt)
            Dim ms As New MemoryStream()
            Dim cs As New CryptoStream(ms, des.CreateDecryptor(key, IV), _
                CryptoStreamMode.Write)
            cs.Write(inputByteArray, 0, inputByteArray.Length)
            cs.FlushFinalBlock()
            Dim encoding As System.Text.Encoding = System.Text.Encoding.UTF8
            Return encoding.GetString(ms.ToArray(), 0, Convert.ToInt32(ms.Length))
        Catch e As Exception
            Return e.Message
        End Try
    End Function

    Public Shared Function Encrypt(ByVal stringToEncrypt As String, Optional ByVal sEncryptionKey As String = "") As String
        If SEncryptionKey = "" Then SEncryptionKey = myEncKey
        Try
            key = System.Text.Encoding.UTF8.GetBytes(Left(SEncryptionKey, 8))
            Dim des As New DESCryptoServiceProvider()
            Dim inputByteArray() As Byte = Encoding.UTF8.GetBytes( _
                stringToEncrypt)
            Dim ms As New MemoryStream()
            Dim cs As New CryptoStream(ms, des.CreateEncryptor(key, IV), _
                CryptoStreamMode.Write)
            cs.Write(inputByteArray, 0, inputByteArray.Length)
            cs.FlushFinalBlock()
            Return Convert.ToBase64String(ms.ToArray())
        Catch e As Exception
            Return e.Message
        End Try
    End Function

End Class
