OK - in that case, please remove the PostgreSQL key as well as the 
value: HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\ODBC\ODBCINST.INI\ODBC Drivers\PostgreSQL

As I said previously, it's not supposed to.

Did you copy the DLL from the installation directory? We intentionally 
don't install into C:\Windows\System32 any more to avoid possible 
conflicts with other software that might have installed SSL or Kerberos 
libraries. Please uninstall the 8.2 driver, and remove any registry 
entries for it that might remain (there shouldn't be any, but if you've 
moved files around, that installer database will no longer reflect 
reality so it might not fully remove everything), then try reinstalling 
using the default install location etc.

Regards, Dave.
