If you look up your compiled vb executable file using an editor like xtreenet you can see all the uncoverted text information. I know there is some sort of utility available to encrypt the executable fully so that no information can't be viewed. Please suggest.

go to www.filepile.com and search for encrypt in the windows 32 bit area.  You'll find plenty of encryption tools to pick from.  Encryption of Exe's has been problematical since the widespread use of antivirus software, which monitors any attempts to write to an .exe file, since this is the method employed by many virus makers.  The best methods employed actually compress the exe, and place the decompression engine into the exe itself, such that when the exe is run, the decompression engine runs first, then passes control to the actual exe.
