Here is my own control panel:
It is also likely that ODBC is only installed as 32-bit. You mention that you can see the files for it in "C:\Windows\SysWOW64". Are they also in "C:\Windows\System32" and/or "C:\Windows\System"?
On my machine, the "C:\Windows\SysWOW64" almost echos the contents of "C:\Windows\System"
To be clear "SysWOW64" stand for "System Windows on Windows 64", and is used for compatibility of 32-bit program running on 64-bit Windows.
