I would suggest keeping the newer file, unless you have a reason to believe it has been compromised.

i can not understand you do you mean to install visual studio 2012

Where did you get anything about Studio 2012 out of this? You are talking about installing 2010. The message you are getting is that the C++ 2010 redistributable file on your system is newer than the one your 2010 installer is trying to install. Just keep the newer file and continue. I believe that option exists in the installer.
