Default DECRYPTING Data?

I want to encrypt and decrypt data, and in one of ASP.net Starter Kits, i found that you can encrypt using the following method:

public static string Encrypt(string cleanString)
  Byte[] clearBytes = new UnicodeEncoding().GetBytes(cleanString);
  Byte[] hashedBytes = ((HashAlgorithm)CryptoConfig.CreateFromName("MD5") ).ComputeHash(clearBytes);

            return BitConverter.ToString(hashedBytes);

string EncryptedData = Encrypt(CleanData);

My problem is that i cannot decrypt the data, anyone has any ideas?

Look through the System.Security.Cryptography, it will provide you with the necessary means to decrypt your data if you are stuck check out MSDN.
