Q: Stack Overflow Error - IE 8

I just installed Internet Explorer 8 ...  I have a Windows XP OS ... now when I access certain websites (such, I get multiple Stack Overflow error messages (i.e. Stack Overflow at line: 0).  Then usually, eventually I get a message below the tool bar that states "Internet Explorer has modified this page to help prevent cross-scripting."  I didn't get the Stack Overflow errors with IE 7 ... Can someone tell me how to resolve this issue?  Do I need to uninstall IE8 and go back to IE7 until this is resolved and they get the kinks out of IE8?

BTW ... I have done the following already to try and fix the issue:

1)  Ran IE8 without Add-ons and then accessed the website ... the stack overflow errors still occur.

2)  Viewed the website in "Compatibility View" ... the stack overflow errors still occur.

3)  "RESET" my Internet Explorer settings as suggested in other posts, but it still did not fix the issue.

Please help ... It is very frustrating.
