Firstly you will have great difficulty in obtaining code samples (for anything) in VB6, it is at least 10 years out of date.

You can get VB.NET Express, which is free, from here[^], it is a much better choice if you are able to use the language of your choice.

Secondly, It is going to be difficult for you to obtain up to date virus signatures in any usable quantities.
