I have a copy of VB 6 and would like to learn how to program. I bought a "learn VB in 21 days" book but this almost put me off completely. Does anyone of a website or other resource where I can learn VB for FREE?

I suggest you pick a simple project and learn as you go along making it.

Do You Know the 4 Main Threat Actor Types?

Do you know the main threat actor types? Most attackers fall into one of four categories, each with their own favored tactics, techniques, and procedures.

I agree with procyn00.  The learn in 21 days book only shows you how to do , in my opinion, simple and mostly cosmetic tasks.  

When you pick a project, don't make it too involved, but also don't make it so easy you don't push yourself forward. Also make it expandable so you can add to it in the future, using new techniques and features of vb.  

Project planning is a big pat of programming. You need to get the big picture and have a goal, along with measurable steps to achieve it.  

I suggest doing a project that accesses data, not just display things on a form.

Also, go to sites like vbcode.com.  Search through their samples or posted code.  Download some.  Run them. See what they do.  Start modifying.

Another thing as a programmer you need to be able to do is read other peoples code.  Although in utopia all programs are written well, all standards followed, variables named descriptively and correctly, in reality it isn't that way at all.
