The Visual C++ software is not like other versions of software when new releases come out. Whatever you installed on your computer that uses the 2005 version, will not be able to run on the 2008 version. That's why you see both versions listed because the new one doesn't over-write the old one like regular software updates do when a new version is released. So unless you specifically know what on your computer needs the 2005 version, then you are taking a big risk because uninstalling it is going to disable something.
