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 

Hope that helps,
