The code above is in c#... do you have a problem with your code or do you want it in vb.net ?

Vb.net code of example above
Public Function URLDecode(ByVal What As String) As Object 
    Dim functionReturnValue As Object = Nothing 
    Dim Pos As Integer 
    Dim pPos As Integer 
    What = What.ToString().Replace("+", " ") 
    Dim Stream As New StringReader(What) 
    Dim Err As ErrorEventArgs 
    If Convert.ToInt64(Err) = 0 Then 
        Pos = What.ToString().IndexOf("%", 1) 
        pPos = 1 
        While Pos > 0 
            pPos = Pos + 3 
            Pos = What.ToString().IndexOf("%", pPos) 
        End While 
        Stream.WriteText(Strings.Mid(What, pPos)) 
        Stream.Position = 0 
        functionReturnValue = Stream.ReadToEnd() 
        Pos = What.ToString().IndexOf("%", 1) 
        While Pos > 0 
            What = Strings.Left(What, Pos - 1) + Strings.Chr(CLng("&H") + Strings.Mid(What, Pos + 1, 2)) + Strings.Mid(What, Pos + 3) 
            Pos = Pos + 1 
            Pos = What.ToString().IndexOf("%", Pos) 
        End While 
        functionReturnValue = What 
    End If 
    Stream = Nothing 
    Return functionReturnValue 
End Function

You don't have to do all this. There is a ready-made .net function for this:
public string URLDecode(string What)
       return System.Web.HttpUtility.UrlDecode(What);
