Just drop a Timer on your Form and set its Interval property to what you want.  Then, in the Tick() event, change the Location() of your PictureBox:

    Private Sub Timer1_Tick(ByVal sender As System.Object, ByVal e As System.EventArgs) Handles Timer1.Tick
        Dim pt As Point = PictureBox1.Location
        ' ..change "pt" somehow...
        pt.Offset(1, 1) ' diagonally down the form to the right
        PictureBox1.Location = pt
    End Sub
