Can I create multiple threads and run the process separately?

I need to develop a program that can display two different flash movies on two different portion of the screen; the third portion of the screen should read the serial port and do some processing on the data.

So what I think is I have to do is create three threads and run the process separately. Is that a right approach? Thanks.
Based on the limited info in your question, it does sound reasonable. With multiple threads the hassle will come if you have to coordinate data between the three windows. I strongly recommend you take a look at Programming Microsoft .NET by Jeff Prosise for an excellent discussion on threading and synchronization in .NET.
