The animated TECHTip Tutorial is available here.
A Thread is programming code that is processed (by the CPU [Central Processing Unit]) serially (1, 2, 3, 4, 32, N, etc.) and executed within a Process – a system of virtual memory space, code, data, and system resources.
Shown here is a Single-Threaded Process with each COM being processed by the CPU one at a time. Each thread can run separate sections of code called Multiple Threads (N) that can execute the same section of code.
