    You are probably out of luck. If it could be decrypted, it wouldn't be very secure, would it?

    What encryption method was used?

    Can you delete the passwords or manually set it to a known value?

    Why is the password needed ? You might have other options - however, knowing how is was encrypted would probably help you find a solution quicker.
