"An error occurred while initializing SQL /Server Compact: The database file may be corrupted..."

I am asking this here because I find others around the web asking about this:

When I turn on my computer, I get a "An error occurred while initializing SQL /Server Compact: The database file may be corrupted Run the repair utility to check the database file.  [ Database name = \\?\C:\ProgramData\DDNi\Osis2Service\Data\Oasis2.sdf]."


I am not a developer, but have a couple Corel-based graphics programs, one with a dongle, as well as the usual programs found on a Sony with Windows 7 Home edition.  The graphics programs are not operating at optimum performance.  Could this be affecting them?  Do you think I need to replace this file?  Can trying to replace it cause a lot of problems?
