I like everyone else has had problems with using icloud on a windows pc.  I use windows 7 and ie 9 and was experiencing

slow responsiveness from icloud and eventually the dreaded message "can't load app for mail", notes, etc.  After experimenting

I determined that if i opened a inprivate browser window in ie and made sure that under tools that the security setting disabled

the window toolbars and extensions when in inprivate browsing mode that the icloud site was responsive and that mail, notes, etc were

readily accessible.   I've repeated this enough to know it works.


Hope that helps a few users.

iphone 4s, iOS 5
