The Microsoft Visual C++ 2008 Redistributable Package (x64) installs runtime components of Visual C++ Libraries required to run 64-bit applications developed with Visual C++ on a computer that does not have Visual C++ 2008 installed.
if you are using 64 bit win7 ,and install 64bit avg then AVG may have install the Visual Studio 2008 x64 Redistributable,because it needed it to run
My answers are my opinion only,usually

MS Office is not the only program with these sorts of relationships.

In any event though, there doesn't appear to be an AVG version of that Microsoft app available: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/AVG_%28software%29

AVG does install it's own version of that program...which is fine if AVG is installed.
If AVG has been uninstalled, that version of Visual Studio...serves no purpose. You can uninstall it normally...or you can leave it (does no harm, does no good).
