For your case, one possible solution is to use BackgroundWorker
This class has the following handy events for you:
DoWork: It contains you long executing code.  For example you can pass the process file list as argument.
ProgressChanged: It contains code to update your list box (or a progress bar) while running do work.
RunWorkerCompleted: Execute after DoWork finishes.

Notice that only the last two events can write to the UI controls, DoWork is executed on a thread.

Note: If more info required please post your current code.
