Over the past few months I been forced to do a restart in order to access the internet. Sometimes multiple 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, until next time, which probably will be later the same day.
My laptop is running Windows 7...IE 9. Never have to restart, but it will not let me print to my wireless printer.
Very frustrating, maybe I should use both for target practice....tempting.
Any help would be greatly appreciated. Did I mention I'm NOT very computer savvy.

thanx

Re your XP connectivity problem...

The fact that one browser produces no problems...would seem to indicate that the hardware/drivers are not the problem. Likewise, the O/S is removed from suspicion.

I would either reset, then update properly, IE...or use a different browser.
