over the past few months, I've noticed a lot of files in my c: drive, but after noticing a dodgy file named "cd", i want to know what they are.

The eula files have something to do with visual studio, but i on't know what the "cd" file is. Also, is it safe to delete the install.res files?

The cd file is an artifact from an installation. It has no size or value, so can therefore be safely deleted. It poses no threat though.

 

As Roodo linked, the others are from Visual C++ Redistributable installation, and can also be safely deleted.
