I understand left wing anarchists whoa re violent might be involved say in smashing up an RBS office in 2009 during anti G20 protests, however what do Libertarian Anarchists or right wing anarchists want/use violence to get, say a more free market, less taxes?

Firstly, the terminology debate here. "Libertarian Anarchist" is mainly a term used by 'Anarcho-capitalists' to sound a bit more acceptable. Most anarchists consider it a redundant term (as obviously you couldn't have an "Authoritarian Anarchist").

Though to answer the question I think you're trying to ask, they don't. Nor do they do much of anything in the way of forming political movements, apart from voting for Ron Paul.

So when in the ask a libertarian anything thread for example one of the posters says I am a libertarian and an anarchist im guessing he doesn't mean "anarchist" as in some of the left wing anarchists in Germany in the 70's that used violence like Red Faction etc that used violence.

The short answer is your guess is right.

Though I'd point out that Red Army Faction were a Marxist-Leninist group, not an anarchist one.
