Internet Explorer 8 and the iertutil.dll processor loop

So I was banging my head on a client’s machine the other day with a unique error.  IE8 was in a processor loop with iertutil.dll , which I observed using Process Monitor.  I tried the normal repairs of addons being disabled, reinstall IE8, Flash, Java, etc.  Finally, I found what the problem was.  See, the issue only occurred on a page or two and not most pages, that should have been a clue.  The user accidentally turned on “Compatibility Mode” for and whatever code Yahoo through at it through Compatibility Mode caused the loop, just disable it and save yourself the 1hr plus I put into it 🙂
