I've been asked to quickly run up a application that creates a text file of computers in an OU and then loops through each line to reboot them one by one.

I would really like to show a progress bar to give a visual indication but I've never done one of these before:

Here's my existing code:
Try
                    Dim str2 As String = File.OpenText(text).ReadLine
                    Dim reader2 As New StreamReader(text)
                    
                    Do While Not reader2.EndOfStream
                            str2 = reader2.ReadLine
                            Process.Start("C:\Windows\System32\shutdown.exe", " /m \\" & str2 & " /r /t 2 /d p:0:0")
                            Threading.Thread.Sleep(6000)
                            
                    Loop
                Catch ex As SystemException
                    MsgBox(ex.Message)
                End Try

Can anyone show me how to get "ProgressBar1" into this loop please?

In this example the progressbar is named PB on the form:
        Dim str2 As String
        Dim file As New FileInfo(Text)
        Dim sB As Long = file.Length
        Dim cR As Long = 0
        PB.Maximum = 100

        Dim reader2 As New StreamReader(Text)
        Try
            Do While Not reader2.EndOfStream
                str2 = reader2.ReadLine
                cR = cR + str2.Length
                PB.Value = (cR / sB) * 100
                Application.DoEvents()
                Process.Start("C:\Windows\System32\shutdown.exe", " /m \\" & str2 & " /r /t 2 /d p:0:0")
                Threading.Thread.Sleep(6000)
            Loop
        Catch ex As SystemException
            MsgBox(ex.Message)
        End Try
