Visual C++?

I have Windows Vista SP2 and I was looking through programs that are installed and saw something called "Microsoft Visual C++ Redistributable". I am really bad at computers so does someone mind telling where it comes from or what it is? When I googled it I also saw on the Microsoft website that there was a 2008 and it didn't list Vista under the "For windows .." at 2005.. so how come it doesn't update itself either?
