I want to build a panic button so when the button is pressed it sends a command to the pc  (probably vb that will then set of an alert) im not sure how I can send it from the Arduino. could I possibly write com data? Really out of my depth !

Of course.
Code: [Select]
Serial.print("Panic!");

I wrote a blog post on basic Arduino - Processing communication which you might find useful if you are new to serial communication using Arduino and stuff like that. Here is the link: http://theblubot.blogspot.in/2013/10/interfacing-arduino-from-processing.html
