I can't think of any reason why it would not.  If you are woried about it use a different function to compare two memory blocks.
IRQL refers to the Interrupt Request Level -- something that is significant when writing a device driver, but irrelevant for standard applications (VB is most often used for writing standard user-interactive programs).  In any case, all that note does is reassure you that your IRQL is not an issue.
