It is. Check under HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\Software\ODBC\ODBC.ini. There's a
key for each DSN which contains the config values. Just delete the key.
Also, there will be a single value corresponding to each DSN under the
'ODBC Data Sources' key. Delete that as well. User DSNs are in the same
place, but under HKEY_CURRENT_USER.

Hack your registry at your own risk. Backup first. Etc. etc.
