I have problems with loops...

I have a program that read pixels from another application. That works fine so far.
Depending on what happens in the other application I want do things in my own program.
If for example some pixels in the other application become blue I want to increment an integer in my program. basically just monitor what happens in another application.

I was thinking about using a loop. and in the loop have calls to functions and subs. In the example below status and analyze

Private Sub runLoop()
While (True)
   DoEvents
   Sleep (500)
   statusText.Text = status
   analyze
Wend
end sub

This doesnt work very good, my computer becomes unstable after awhile and I have to restart visual basic.

What is a good solution for this. I want to be able to control the speed of the loop, so that it calls the functions and subs like twice every second.

thanks in advance
