Over the past few months I been forced to do a restart in order to access the internet. Sometimes mutiple times per day.
Once I restart, things seem OK except for being somewhat slow. I am running windows XP/sp3...IE 8. When I can't get to the internet with IE, sometimes I'll use firefox. Seems I can get to the internet thru firefox, but some things won't work, ie. the printer. If I restart, then all things are Ok. Very frustrating.
Any help would be greatly appreciated. Did I mention I'm very computer savvy.

I can't help very much other than to say that I found IE8 was useless on one of my PCs with your OS. It took forever to do anything. I only use IE for Win updates and even those were pathetically slow. I ended up reverting to IE7 which I still use. I did not have any issues with other browsers though, which you do. Does cycling power to the router get things running again?

The first thing you do with these sorts of problems is to ensure you don't have any malware.
