i also attach the working project to this post, you can open it using visual studio 2008 express edition or above.

Form1.cs :

using System;
using System.Collections.Generic;
using System.ComponentModel;
using System.Data;
using System.Drawing;
using System.Linq;
using System.Text;
using System.Windows.Forms;
using System.Net;

namespace GetCharSet
{
    public partial class Form1 : Form
    {
        WebBrowser wb = new WebBrowser();
        public Form1()
        {
            InitializeComponent();
            wb.DocumentCompleted += new WebBrowserDocumentCompletedEventHandler(wb_DocumentCompleted);
        }

       private void wb_DocumentCompleted(object sender, WebBrowserDocumentCompletedEventArgs e)
        {
            Cursor.Current = Cursors.Default;
            button1.Enabled = true;
            lblEncoding.Text = wb.Document.Encoding;
        }
       
        private void button1_Click(object sender, EventArgs e)
        {

            try
            {
                lblEncoding.Text = "please wait while downloading..";
                button1.Enabled = false;
                Cursor.Current = Cursors.WaitCursor;
                wb.Url = new Uri(textBox1.Text);
            }
            catch (Exception ex)
            {
                lblEncoding.Text = string.Empty;
                button1.Enabled = true;
                Cursor.Current = Cursors.Default;
                MessageBox.Show(ex.Message);
            }
            
        }
    }
}
