Having read some useful topics on the internet, I decided to try non-cached Exchange mode in Outlook. After disabling caching for my account, it still kept the OST file, even after forced deletion. Then I noticed some offline folders were being kept.
Firewall could not start because of error 1068 - some dependency failed to start. Outgoing connections work, incoming are blocked. I drilled down to Windows Firewall Authorization Driver malfunction.
Somehow my Windows 7 partially remapped a drive letter to another entity. It happened suddenly with some unexpected behavior. I noticed it when it could no longer connect to a network share.
