comment Why is the Windows standalone Slack app stuck at “reconnecting…”?
Bring up Task Manager and look for any running instances of slack.exe. If you find any, kill them and then try restarting the app.

comment This Operation has been canceled due to restrictions in effect on this computer, Please contact your administrator
If that function/setting is being managed/restricted by a Group Policy at the domain level then being a local administrator has no bearing. It's an Office setting being managed by a GPO. You'd have to edit the GPO to remove that restriction.

Additionally, the default settings for the Event logs on standalone Windows 7 machines (not joined to an Active Directory domain) is to overwrite events as needed, so you're in no danger of the Event logs "filling up".

So you'll either need to install the correct printer driver, find a suitable third party solution, or live with the events being generated.

The events are related to printer driver redirection (as you've already stated) and the problem is that Windows 7 has no mechanism to "load" the correct printer driver on the guests. This problem has been solved in Windows Server operating systems beginning with Windows Server 2008 with the use of the Terminal Services Easy Print and in earlier versions of Windows Server with the Terminal Server Fallback Printer Driver or with the use of a custom print.inf file. On Windows 7 the solution would be to install the correct printer driver for each redirected printer on the appropriate guest.

Microsoft did fix the problem long ago, beginning with Windows Server 2008. Windows 7 isn't a server operating system and isn't intended to be used as such. Use the right tool (OS) for the job.

comment Outlook 2013 clean up mail on the server
OK, but downloading 12 months of email to the OST files doesn't remove it from the server, so I'm not seeing how the OST file is related to cleaning up the actual mailbox.

Unless this is SBS there is no default mailbox size limit in Exchange Server 2007. Your Exchange administrator may have set limits, but you'd have to ask them in order to verify that. I'm not understanding what you mean about downloading your email. If you're using a native Outlook/Exchange connection then your email isn't downloaded to Outlook except in the case of cached mode and an OST file. Is that how you have Outlook configured? With an OST file, mail isn't downloaded off of the server. Your OST file is an exact local copy of your mailbox, no more no less.

What do you mean your mailbox is almost full? There are no default mailbox size limits in Exchange 2007. Are you saying that there's a mailbox size limit on your mailbox? If so, why aren't you archiving older mail? It also sounds like you're using POP to connect to your mailbox, why are you doing that with Exchange?

comment odbc error connecting mysql: “sql server does not exist or access denied”
Server does not exist or access denied - Have you verified the server name or ip address that you're trying to connect to? Have you verified the identity that you're trying to connect with? What have you tried and what were the results? Your question, as it stands, is poor. In fact, it really isn't a question, it's a statement. If you've put as much effort into solving your problem as you've put into this question then I'm not surprised that you haven't resolved it.

comment VLAN / Virtual LAN / which one to use for small enterprise network
Do yourself a favor, purchase a separate internet connection from your ISP and set up a guest network using that internet connection. Keep the hotel "business" network and the guest network completely isolated from each other. This would be the simplest and securest way to keep the two networks separated.

Have you confirmed that the process in question is connecting to the internet? The network utilization of that process may all be on the local network.

That still doesn't make sense. Do you mean that you're on some kind of metered/limited internet connection?

This question doesn't make sense. How are you losing data, exactly?
