Do I need this program installed om my computer or did it just download with my AVG anti virus program?

Visual Studio 2008 x64 Redistributables is developed by AVG Technologies

Thanks.

Visual Studio has nothing to do with AVG - it is a Microsoft product.

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

That is indeed a good possibility.

Visual Studio, database programs (like Excel) and MS.NET...are all linked together for any system having MS Office installed.

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

There's a vulnerability in Microsoft Visual Studio which might be linked to your issue. See: http://www.securitytracker.com/id/1026792

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).

Marioo, if the publisher of the Visual C++ Redistributable is Microsoft or Microsoft Corporation, leave it be. Are you sure it's from AVG Technologies?
