First step - do not try to code it yourself.

This has already been done many times, in many libraries.  If you do not understand the finer points of encryption, salting values, keys etc then you will make mistakes and end up with very easy to crack encryption.

Google it and reuse code that already exists and is published :

There is a complete example to encrypt/decrypt a string with AES at MSDN:
http://msdn.microsoft.com/en-us/library/system.security.cryptography.rijndaelmanaged%28v=VS.90%29.aspx
That will encryt to/from bytes. If you want to encrypt to another string, then try with:
