I have Windows XP, but I couldn't find an
Administrative Tools folder, so I downloaded and
installed TweakUI. I now have an Admin Tools folder on
my desktop. I also located the file odbccp32.cpl in
the Windows/system32 folder, so I'll try to figure out
how to enable it.

However, when I double-clicked odbccp32.cpl, I was
rewarded with something similar to what I got before.
I hope there's a user-friendly program waiting at the
end of this journey! :)

Thanks for all the tips.
