Without knowing exactly what those are, I would advise against getting rid of any of them. There's just the possibility that one or more applications on your machine needs a specific version (they didn't get there by themselves -- the installation of something is likely to have put each of them there. That's why they're called "redistributables" -- Microsoft lets software developers redistribute them) and will kick and scream (virtually) and refuse to run if it can't find it.

Hope that helps.
