Most likely it is part of windows installer, see here:

There are several other valid possibilities, including Nero, Open Office and various other redistributables from MS.

Let us know more about it if at all possible.

There is also a "possibility" that this is malware, see here for info:

Let us know if the file redist.dll appears in "C:\Windows\System32" (but don't delete any files at this stage).

I would install and run MalwareBytes freebie just to see if that finds anything:

The above often finds what AV's miss.

Always pop back and let us know the outcome - thanks
