Anyone tell me what files I need to remove (I removed via remove programs
and it is still working, I want to switch back to 7.4 drivers).

First, use the ODBC administrator to get rid of all the system and user DSNs
associated with the driver you want to remove.

Then, check the registry in HKLM\Software\ODBC\ODBCINST.INI. There will be a
key for each ODBC driver in your system. Look in the PostgreSQL one. There
will be string values named "Driver" and "Setup" that point to the driver
DLL. (For postgres, both values should name the same DLL, and it's probably
in your Windows system directory). Delete that DLL.

Then delete the PostgreSQL driver key from the registry, and delete its
entry in the "ODBC Drivers" key as well.

There might be a generic script or utility that does this automatically for
any ODBC driver, but I'm not a windows user so I can't say for sure.

Hope that helps,
