Retrieve password? (C#)

Hi
My client program requires to encrypt and store a sforce user email and password in database. Since the web link doesn't allow the user password to be merged into the link for security reasons. Now I can merge the user email, user id, sessionID, and server URL without any problem. Can I query to find the user password using the above information even though the user is not a sforce admin? If yes, what's the most efficient way to do this?

Nope.  You can not obtain a password.  You can set a password, in which case you already know the password, you can reset the password, in which case the reset password is given to you in the response, but you can not retrieve the password.
