comment User vs. System Environment Variables: Do System Variables Override User Variables?
I rebooted and still when I run "echo %path%" from a cmd.exe window, it displays my system env variable, not the value of the user variable. So, I deleted the User variable, o Admin access, changed my System path variable and the did teh same echo cmd. The updated env value was displayed w/o rebooting. This tells me that USER vars do not override system vars and that a reboot isn't necessary. Neitehr is what I expected.

comment 32 vs. 64-bit ODBC Administor Utilities
@Ramhound: What's not confusing about naming both the 32 and 64 bit utilities Odbcad32.exe (note the key word: 32)? What's not confusing about placing the 32 bit utility in the SysWoW64 folder and the 64 bit utility in the system32 folder? Do you work for Microsoft?

comment 32 vs. 64-bit ODBC Administor Utilities
Judging by the fact that I don't see the 32 bit DB2 driver available when I go thru the Control Panel to create a new DSN, I would say that inb teh Control Panel, Windows provides only a link to the 64 bit version of the utility on my 64 bit OS, which - if it had to pick only one- would probably be a sane choice.

@rebel: thanks, I'll check it out, but I think I resolved it by luck. I'll update the question with a history of what I did.

@Sunk818: My mistake, I previously ran the fully qualified path "C:\Windows\SysWOW64\sfc.exe" when I got that error. Without qualifying it, it founf it somewhere else in my path and is now running.
