VB itself has no multithreading. However you can use the Win32 API's to create a new thread and use it. I do not recommend using it though.

Look for CreateThread

Public Declare Function CreateThread Lib "kernel32" Alias "CreateThread" (lpThreadAttributes As SECURITY_ATTRIBUTES, ByVal dwStackSize As Long, lpStartAddress As Long, lpParameter As Any, ByVal dwCreationFlags As Long, lpThreadId As Long) As Long

VB.Net is supporting multi threading natively.
