VC_RED files are associated with Visual C+ Redistributable packages for Visual Studio installation.

They are safe to delete, as are these associated temporary files:

install.exe
install.res.1028.dll
install.res.1031.dll
install.res.1033.dll
install.res.1036.dll
install.res.1040.dll
install.res.1041.dll
install.res.1042.dll
install.res.2052.dll
install.res.3082.dll
