Might be a silly question, but - do you have Access installed on both machines? If you have moved the access file to your networking file, you'll need the main program on the machine you are trying to access it FROM as well...

    Make sure both systems are fully networked under windows.
    You may need to use the connectivity tool to configure the firewalls

How to solve the mysql error 2003 Can't Connect to mysql server on 'localhost' (10061)

Your client software attempts to connect to a MySQL database instance on your local computer. There is no DB server running locally, hence the error.

Before reinstalling Windows, did you connect to a remote DB server or did you use a local instance?
In former case, you need to configure the DB connection to point to the remote serve. In the latter case, on top of Windows you also need to reinstall the MySQL DB server software locally, and it needs to be started.

Is there a utility to repair a Quickbooks POS

I don't believe there is such a utility.

However, in looking for a POS solution, to your question, I was directed to this page (a special phone number for Intuit Data Recovery Services):

My research said that this article applies to POS just as it does to the regular product (even though this page does not specify that it relates to POS).

Quickbooks items list

That depends on whether you are using QuickBooks, or QuickBooks Point of Sale.
For QuickBooks, one of the fastest ways to determine the number of Items, is to export the Items list to an exel spreadsheet. Once there, you subtract the number of rows used for header information.
This is important information to know, as with the quickbooks, you may run into a list limitation of 10,000 items ( or listings in the items list, this will include inactive items and sales tax items, non-inventory items and such.).
To export the lists, you should find a listing under the file menu.
If you are using Point of Sale, for versions 1 to 3, your list limits are 30,000. For versions 4 and up, there was a change to the databases that makes them pretty much unlimited. The latest version, 7, will tell you the number of items at the bottom of the items list screen.
