Have you tried it on another computer with IE8 to see if you have the same problem?  Maybe something with screen resolution, a plug-in, something in tools / internet options selected, or compatibility view settings.

Have you modified the SpryMenuBar.js or SpryMenuBarHorizonal.css files at all?

Can you post your html code for the Spry Menu?

Do you have a link I could view a sample of the problem?

Regards,
Torrey

if you have layout working fine i IE7 just add the following meta tag to the header
<meta http-equiv="X-UA-Compatible" content="IE=7" /> to switch the compatible mode to IE7
