How2 get list of software installed but not the Belarc way

Belarc Advisor shows a list of all the software I have installed on my PC however the problem I have with it is that it is too detailed and by this I mean for ex. it has:
Adobe - Shockwave Flash Ver. 11,4,402,278
Adobe - Shockwave Flash Ver. 14,0,0,176
(32/64-bt)
Adobe - Shockwave Flash Ver. 15,0,0,152 (32/64-bt)

Well I do not want to know how many versions of FLASH I have but just that I have it.
And then it also has things like:

No Company Name - AC3Flter Config
No Company Name - Adobe Help
No Company Name - Advanced Scan to PDF Free
No Company Name - Applicaton Ver. 0, 2, 50, 7
No Company Name - Atwtusb.exe Ver. 1, 0, 0, 0
(64-bt)
No Company Name - CsrSyncMLServer (64-bt)

The problem I have here is:
1st, What do you mean "No Company Name" or Who cares, all I want is the name of the software really
Also how is "Adobe Help" a software? I would not consider this to be nor want it on my list
and finally, What are, "Applicaton Ver. 0, 2, 50, 7" OR "Atwtusb.exe Ver. 1, 0, 0, 0 "

Basically what I would like is a list of my software as shown on my Start Menu that and only that (or in the 'Programs and Features" [whereby I prefer the old XP name of it "Add Remove Programs]
Up to now I used the Windows SNIP IT tool to take a snap photo of 'Programs and Features" in series. The problem here is that
_A_ it can't be done all in one shot and
_B_ it doesn't have everything (The Start Menu does)
Can anyone help with this?
Thank you

I use Screenpresso: The Ultimate Screen Capture Tool for Windows. Free version.

I have tried many but keep going back to Screenpresso!

I swear I had replied but it seems somehow, somewhere, something went wrong and it did not make it through. So here I go again.
The idea is brilliant, thank you, very, very much. It is truly helpful.
The problem I have with it is that it is similar with the add/remove programs in that it -a- does not actually give everything and -b- gives too much--sounds like a contradiction I know.
It does not give everything because there is stuff on my start menu which does not appear on the ''programs and features'' or CC. It gives too much because it gives all the version of Flash, or what-have-you as well (see photo). What I like about the Start Menu, is that it tells you for ex. that you do have Adobe whatever installed but not that you have 267 updates to it. SO in a way I was hoping for something to copy the Start menu, which includes programs which didn't go through an installation process or Photoshop Add-ins for ex.
Anyhow, the CC idea is great, thanks again.
