    What do you mead "inside the system"? AFAIK uninstall procedure does not remove datasources from ODBC administrator... you can still see them after the driver is removed.

    If that fails you can use regedit to erase all traces of this driver from the registry.

    Also edit odbc.ini in system directory.

    what i mean is that u still can see psqlodbc in the add/remove program when u tried to uninstall it from add/remove program in the contron panel, and when i tried to install the version 7, it said another version already exist and must uninstall the existing version first.
