ODBC Data Source Administrator Crash

I've got a user in my organization that experiences a crash in ODBC Data Source Administrator when he clicks the File DSN tab. This has been happening for the past 2 months.

The program will just hang forever and will "stop working" when I try to force close it. OS is Windows 7 Pro 64-bit.

The 32 and 64 bit driver versions are installed and both versions of the program crash when this happens.

Event Viewer shows a .NET Runtime error 1026 at the same time of the crash. Updating/uninstalling and reinstalling .NET did no good.

SFC/scannow didn't show any results. Tried replacing a potentially corrupt .dll file but that didn't work either.

I've got threads open in the Spiceworks, StackOverflow, SevenForums and Microsoft Community; but none have done me much good.

In Event Viewer

Faulting application name: odbcad32.exe, version: 6.1.7600.16385

Faulting module name: ole32.dll, version: 6.1.7601.17514

I'm totally stumped on this and could really use a hand here please.
