Translation of cookie data

*HOW* are you reading the cookie in VB??
If you are doing it as Request.Cookie("name") then you shouldn't be seeing that.
If you are trying to read the raw cookie data, then that is correct.
Cookies are encoded the same way Query Strings and Post data are. In ASP/VBScript code, you can explicitly unencode them using the VBScript function UnEscape but I don't know if VB has that function available.
Best would be to stop trying to read raw cookie data and allow the ASP Request object to do the decoding for you, if that's an available option for you.
