I have an Umbraco website that I have to restart every morning in order for the users to be able to publish content. Is there any solutions available that will help me get around doing this each morning?

It may not be your answer, but I think we suffer from the same problem. I have asked a general approach taken when an error occurs in IIS in the following post:

What error messages do you get when it fails? To resolve it, do you do a full server restart to get it to work?

Check Event Viewer for any clues on the failure, and Failed Request Tracing (FRT) can be used to get inside the worker thread a bit more and possible see further clues as to the cause.
