Either do a Thread.Join(threadobject), or else set the thread's IsBackground property to true (before you start it).

try defining the thread you are creating  as a Background worker,
when you define the thread. like this...
thread t = new thread(new threadstart(function));
t.IsBackground = true;
t.Start();

Try to close all threads using ExitThread and then use the Application.Exit

You may also use System.Environment.Exit or end statement but both are ungraceful way of ending the program. you should close all the threads and forms and end gracefully. you may also try Environment.Exit(0)
