Number of threads in Windows 98

I have built an application which uses multiple thread concept to exploit the prallelism of the processor.
This includes some GUI also. When I execute this application in WinNT system, there are a total of 17 threads running through this application. When all the threads are active, there are a total of 18 threads at a given point of time.
When I execute the same application on Windows 98, the number of threads keep increasing and after a while go beyond 100 threads when the maximum working threads should be 18 threads.
Also, there are 5 threads that are spawned in my application. How are the rest of the 12 or 13 threads accounted for?
Please help me out.
I agree. Here's the link:
