I have not yet done muti-threading with my WinForms, and wonder if you can give me some advice.

Please give me general ideas about the challenges threading presents to WinForms, rather than a bunch of sample programs.  Please explain at a high level the kinds of problems it solves.

still multi-thereading can be achieved by the use of backgroundworker class if you have to update the UI from the thread and other threads can be created for database operations as we do normally.
few samples
