SQL Server 2008 Stored Procedures are encrypted after upgrade from sql server 2005

after installing a new instance of sql server 2008 r2 and restoring sql server 2005 databases to it, stored procedures within the databases are now encrypted.

Can someone tell me why this happened and how to un-encrypt the stored procedures?

Unless the sps were encrypted when you took the backup, I don't think there is any chance it came encrypted.
The easiest option is to go to the original 2005 database instance and script the stored procedure and run it on your 2008 server

I also don't believe that a simple restore in a newer version will encrypt the SPs. Confirm that the SPs aren't encrypted in the original database version.
