I don't mean to be rude, but this question suggests that you need to
read an introduction to multi-threaded programming. It doesn't have to
be a .net-specific text, but ".NET Multithreading" by Alan L. Dennis
(ISBN 1-930110-54-5) is recommended on our web site.

And this one just needs you to read through the code.
