Help with Queue and Multi-Threading (VB.net)

    Hey everyone, I really hope someone can help me since I've been struggling to get this. Here's what I'm trying to do..
    I have a list of items that I want to put into a queue and then process using either multiple threads or actions. Once I've processed the item I then want to add it along with its result into a ListView. I obviously do not want to get duplicates or have items be skipped.

    Below is some of the code I've been messing with. I've struggled to get a thread pool working and found an example using ConcurrentQueue and Action via Microsoft, so that's what I've included. This works, but the results contain duplicates and even some missing data.. Any help would be really appreciated!

    Private Sub btnStart_Click(sender As System.Object, e As System.EventArgs) Handles btnStart.Click
      'create and add to queue
      Dim cq As New ConcurrentQueue(Of String)()
      For Each s As String In mainlist
      lblTotalCnt.Text = cq.Count
      'Action to consume the ConcurrentQueue
      Dim action As Action =
      For Each item As String In cq
      While cq.TryDequeue(item)
      'Processing item and adding it to ListView here
      testString = item
      If PerformCheck(testString) = True Then
      Dim str(2) As String
      Dim itm As ListViewItem
      str(0) = testString
      str(1) = testUpdated
      itm = New ListViewItem(str)
      lblAnalyzedCnt.Text = lblAnalyzedCnt.Text + 1
      lblErrorsCnt.Text = lblErrorsCnt.Text + 1
      End If
      Catch ex As Exception
      'Handle exception here
      End Try
      End While
      End Sub
      'Start 4 concurrent consuming actions
      Parallel.Invoke(action, action, action, action)
    End Sub
