    Been trying to decode something, but I believe the last thing I need has been hashed.

    Anyone know how to decode that?

    looks to me like an MD5 hash:

    an MD5 hash is 16-byte. in the string you pasted, each byte is represented as a 2-character hex value (thus 32-characters long).

    it's pretty much impossible to get the original string from the hash value (except by brute force?), especially if they append a secret key before hashing.
