From M/soft and others -
The VC++ and msxml libraries are needed for IE. Also, you are better off keeping .net, as Microsoft is migrating more and more of their software to it (and, hopefully, eventually everything will run on .net, allowing us to finally switch to a new processor architecture).
Different programs may require specific versions and not just the latest version. If you start uninstalling these things you may find that some programs don't work. Given the relatively small amount of disk space these things tend to occupy its not worth the average home user manually uninstalling. Just let Windows manage them for you and forget them.
