Try just:
drUser("member") = Result.Properties("displayName")

Sorry. That means that Result.Properties("displayName") is returning an empty colletion, ie Result.Properties("displayName").Count = 0.

For Each Result As SearchResult In searchResults
                    if(Result.Properties("displayName").Count>0)
                             Dim drUser As DataRow = dtUser.NewRow()
                              drUser("member") = Result.Properties("displayName")(0) <--Here is the error
                              dtUser.Rows.Add(drUser)
                    End If

Nothing ever in the clear!

This technical paper will help you implement VMware’s VM encryption as well as implement Veeam encryption which together will achieve the nothing ever in the clear goal. If a bad guy steals VMs, backups or traffic they get nothing.

fixes that but nothing shows in the listbox except system.DirectoryServices
    Public Sub fillADUserBox()
        Try

            Dim dsUser = GetMyADUsersInDataSet()
            Me.lbxADUserDS.DataSource = dsUser.Tables("Members")
            Me.lbxADUserDS.DisplayMember = "member"
            'Me.lbxADUserDS.ValueMember = "SAMAccount"
        Catch ex As Exception
            Me.lbxADUserDS.DisplayMember = ex.Message.ToString()
        End Try

    End Sub

displayName is not returned as a Search Result.  Perhaps the member name is on another property.  Try the following code to verify what properties are available:
For Each Result As SearchResult In searchResults
    if(Result.Properties("displayName").Count>0)
        Dim drUser As DataRow = dtUser.NewRow()
        drUser("member") = Result.Properties("displayName")(0) <--Here is the error
        dtUser.Rows.Add(drUser)
    Else
        For Each p in Result.Properties
            Console.WriteLine("{0} = {1}", p.Key, p.Value(0)))
        Next
    End If
Next

Here is what it looks like now
 Dim searchResults As SearchResultCollection = dirSearch.FindAll()
            Dim dtUser As DataTable = dsUser.Tables.Add("Members")
            dsUser.Tables.Add("MEMBERS")
            dtUser.Columns.Add("member")
            If searchResults.Count > 0 Then
                For Each Result As SearchResult In searchResults
                    If (Result.Properties("displayName").Count > 0) Then
                        Dim drUser As DataRow = dtUser.NewRow()
                        drUser("member") = Result.Properties("displayName")(0) '<--Here is the error
                        dtUser.Rows.Add(drUser)
                    Else
                        For Each p In Result.Properties
                            Console.WriteLine("{0} = {1}", p.Key, p.Value(0))
                        Next
                    End If
                Next
            End If
            Return dsUser

Your dirSearch.Filter is not correct.  It's pulling the group directory entry not the group members.

It should be something like this:
dirSearch.Filter = "(&(objectClass=user)(memberOf=cn=TeamMembers,OU=Accounts and Groups))"  ' It must be the common name of your group
