If you are going to be removing any, however, you're going to want to decrement i instead:
For i = ListBox1.ListCount - 1 to 0 step -1

Private Sub Form_Load()
Dim i As Long        'even better coding, because a long is faster as an integer!
For i = 9 To 15      'first fill the list with random data
   List1.AddItem i
Next

For i = 0 To List1.ListCount - 1
   List1.List(i) = "item: " & CStr(i)     'then assign new data
Next
End Sub
