    I'm wondering how I can get a list of all programs, that are able to run, maybe limit it to everything in my programs, and another folder, I just need the names of the processes that can run.. like ccleaner.exe, firefox.exe, fl.exe, notepad.exe, ect is there a way to collect them all with running them, and that wont take to long..?

    you could try this program, it generates lists of the contents of folders. it might be able to only list .exe files if you use this wildcard:-
    *.exe

    i use it to make lists and love it, it's one of my favourite programs. my windows install doesn't really work atm so i can't try it out and see if it does what you want. it's a standalone program.

    Here's something i've used that should do the trick.

    . . .

    LExE is a small freeware utility that lists all executable extensions
    on *your* system. The Windows registry entries that determine which
    files are executable can vary from system to system, and this program
    will find those extensions that are marked as executable on your
    particular Windows installation. You will also be able to see if there
    are any suspicious entries marked as executable - on most systems the
    list should just read .exe, .scr, .com, .bat and .pif.

    No installation required! Simply unzip LExE.exe to any directory and run it.

    Looks like if you use the tools that StevieO and iceni60 mentioned TOGETHER, then you'll have what you asked for.
