Unloading a picture from a picturebox in VB.net

I have done some code to load a picture in an array of bytes. The data
is saved in a file in the Hard drive. There is also another piece of
code to display the image. My issue is that I need to unload the
picture before the user press the button to refresh and therefore
reload the image. Generally I would have an error when I try to
download the file and save it. I will have an error that the file is
being used by another process. Noticed that picturebox1.load = nothing
will unload the picture from the picturebox but it will not close the
file completely before going the next instructions. Checking "If
picturebox1.load is nothing = true will be true and therefore there
will no way to identify if the file has been closed or not. I don't
want to use the destroy method since this will remove the picturebox
completely, but if there is no solution to this, I have to destroy it
and recreating it at runtime.

Any suggestions pls?
Thanks
Jansen
