Who put SQL CE 3.1 in my C:\Windows\System32?

I have this one to figure out. My brand new Vista Ultimate box has a mysterious version of SQL CE 3.1 installed in C:\Windows\System32 that is referred to by the registry as:

Microsoft.SQLLITE.MOBILE.OLEDB.3.0

Say what!?!? SQLLITE???

P.S.: Yes, it looks like it is causing trouble: IAlterIndex does not work in my PC even after reinstalling SQL Compact Edition 3.1...

Is something missing me? My vista doesn't have that file you mention...
Windows Vista Ultimate + VS.NET 2003 + VS.NET 2005 + WM2006 SDK + a few more development tools... but no SqlLite file!

Looks like this is something an application installed... The error I'm getting is apparently unrelated to this as the right DLL files are being linked in.
