Yes, if you see the screenshot, the top has arrows pointing to the icon.  It looks like a broken sheet of paper.

It switches IE9 to compatibility mode.

From Microsoft's site:

Compatibility View

IE9 icon
Sometimes the website you’re visiting doesn't look right. It shows up as a jumble of out-of-place menus, images, and text boxes. What's going on? One possible explanation: The site might have been designed for an earlier version of Internet Explorer. If Internet Explorer recognizes that the webpage isn't compatible, you'll see the Compatibility View button on the Address bar. Try clicking it.
Picture of the Compatibility View button The Compatibility View button

In Compatibility View, websites will be displayed as if you were viewing them in a previous version of Internet Explorer, which will often correct display problems. You don’t need to click the button for a site after you’ve done it once—the next time you visit the site, Internet Explorer 9 will automatically show it in Compatibility View. (If you ever want to go back to browsing with Internet Explorer 9 on that site, just click the Compatibility View button again.)

pramod1--The Compatibility View icon is different depending on whether IE needs to use it on a website or whether the site is already in the list.  (White vs. blue)
Once in the list, the site stays there until removed from the list.
The instructions for IE9 in
http://support.google.com/mail/bin/answer.py?hl=en&answer=181472
are not entirely accurate.  You show the Command bar in IE by clicking on a blank spot on the lowest toolbar and checking "Command Bar".  Click on the Tools link in Command Bar to see the link to "Compatibility View Settings".

However, is Compatibility View really what you are talking about in your initial post?  IE often pops up with the message (something to the effect that) "IE has detected an error and will now shut down" and a progress bar shows.  (Ithink there is also something about a message will be sent to MS.)  For me this happens almost exclusively when trying to access certain Microsoft sites (!).  I just click the Cancel button as quickly as possible and the popup goes away and I can proceed with no shutdown of IE and no further problem.
