MS VisualC++2005. Installing problem

I am trying to install a freeware photo stitching programme, but it tells me that I need Microsoft Visual C ++ 2005 Redistributable Package. I tried this several times yesterday,but kept getting bonged out with the message ' this is not a valid Win.32 Application'. I have d/loaded it afresh in case it was corrupt, and now get past the agreement window but now the message comes up 'this is on a redistributable disk which I must insert'. Obviously I don't have it, but I see in Add/Remove there are five versions of VC 2008 and three of 2005. Is it safe to remove all these ( they all show used rarely) and retry installing. If it still says I need a disc, what then? Any help will be appreciated. I am XP Home SP3 32bit Thanks.

Ah--it is AdblockPlus that is the problem. Unchecked a few boxes and it has gone green straight away.
