I have the following user accounts created in my PC.
A ( admin account )
B ( limited account )

I have created the B ( limited ) account for security purpose.

Issue : I can access all the programs ( Start > All Programs ) in the A account but, some of the installed programs are not listed and not running in B.

Following applications are not listed.

1.Ccleaner

2.Vista inspirat brico pack ( vista visualisation for xp ). It is not working in B account.

...etc

Could you suggest me a solution for this?

Just visit the limited account and download / install the desired program . Unless I am not reading things right this will work . If you have any trouble just change the limited account to an administrative account and download the desired program then change back to a limited account .

Some applications require Administrators Group level privilledges for full functionality. Often you can use the "Run As..." option for such applications. From Start > Help and Support:

To start a program as an administrator
In Windows Explorer, click the program executable file that you want to open.
Press SHIFT and hold, right-click the program icon, and then click Run as.
To log on using an Administrator account, click The following user.
In User name and Password, type the Administrator account name and password that you want to use.
Notes

Use this procedure if you want to perform administrative tasks when you are logged on as a member of another group, such as Users or Power Users.
If you want to run a program as a domain administrator, in User name, type the name of the domain followed by the administrator account name. For example:
DomainName\AdministratorName

Use of Run as is not limited to Administrator accounts.
If you try to start a program, such as an MMC console or Control Panel item, from a network location using Run as, it could fail if the credentials used to connect to the network share are different from the credentials used to start the program. The credentials used to run the program might not be able to gain access to the same network share.
If Run as fails, the Secondary Logon service may not be running. For more information, click Related Topics.
You can also use Run as from the command prompt. For more information, click Related Topics.
The Secondary Logon service accepts only password authentication. If policies require smart card logon, then Run as will not work.


You can also change the limited account to a Power Users Group account, which has more priviledges than Limited, but not full System access, so it's still quite secure.
