Your video tip is quite interesting, but overall I prefer to use Mutex classes to accomplish this task. .NET Framework provides Mutex[^] class for performing when the system needs a synchronization mechanism to ensure that only one thread at a time uses the resource. Mutex is a synchronization primitive that grants exclusive access to the shared resource to only one thread. In addition, A Mutex can be either local to a process or system wide.
In addition, CodeProject has many articles that focus on the same concept. Take a look below at some CodeProject search
