i found this link that uses threading to search for a file in a directory.

if you are using .net 2 maybe BackgroundWorker instead of System.Threading is better (handles the threading safely automatically)

hope it helps you

the MSDN documentation has very extensive examples on how to use this new class
http://msdn2.microsoft.com/en-us/library/system.componentmodel.backgroundworker.aspx

or
you could try these links maybe for other examples:
http://www.codeguru.com/columns/vb/article.php/c10755/
http://www.itwriting.com/pcw/index.html

its not really that hard, the new framework makes it all very simple. hope that helps a bit
