Disable installing redist apps in Steam registry

This registry tweak disables the automatic installation of several redist packages when installing games on Steam.

These include: .NET framework, DirectX, OpenAL, PhysX and Visual C++ runtimes.

This will speed up installation of Steam games. But take note, if you do not have these frameworks installed, some games might not run.
