I have used the solution below to fix mine and others that have run into this issue.
Start --> Programs --> Accessories (Right Click on Command Prompt) --> Run as Administrator
then type in: "Netsh winsock reset" (-without the quotes-)
Hit enter, restart PC, iCloud For PC should now connect without any server errors
(This solutions will work in some instances when trying to fix errors associated when you are unable to connect to iTunes also.)
I have tried bzpilot's solution but it has made no difference. I have changed my password, reloaded Microsoft Outlook, downloaded and removed iCloud half a dozen times and repeatedly restarted my computer and all I get when I try to log in to iCloud on my PC (running Windows 7 Ultimate x 64) is a litle circle going round and round - seemingly forever!!! Intensely frustrating as I had really hoped that iCloud would allow me to sync my iPad and iPod touch seamlessly and I have wasted a huge amount of time that I really don't have, trying to sort this out. At least I haven;t lost any data.
my wife has now an own Apple-ID and with this account I can log in into iCloud for PC, but this is no solution.
I found in another thread, to try it with a second account on my pc.
I started with a new account with user rights an i can log in into iCloud, but this is again no solution.
I need my Apple-ID in iCloud with my User-Account on Win 7 64bit.
Thanks for help.
I have exactly the same issue on a Windows 7 PC.
Have given it lots of time - tried to uninstall and reinstall, updated itunes and swapped internet browsers, all to no avail.
Apple must be allerted to problem this by now. How long is it likely to be before there is a fix or update to sort this? Do Apple move quick on thisngs like this or am I likely to be waiting a month or two?
I followed the instructions in another post and it solved my problem.
Go to Start ->Programs -> Accessories -> right click - Command Prompt -> Run as administrator -> then enter netsh winsock reset
It then wants you to restart the PC. When I did that the sign on worked. It did remove parental controls but I didn't care. I think you can add that back.
Hope this helps.
I'm just like Stoke...and Aretha Franklin when she sings "Re Re Re Re Respect", i.e. "Re"set, "Re"start, "Re"install, "Re"peat. The "netsh winsock reset" process helped me "thaw out" as freezing iTunes 10.5, but not the iCloud sign-in from within my PC Control Panel access. I'll just keep patting my foot until Apple's "Re"ady to make "Re"solve of this issue.
I have same problem and CAN NOT login into iCloud agent in my PC, the circle spins and spins and nothing happens:
1. I have successfully login into iCloud web service in the same PC
2. My OS is Win7 64bit
3. I can login into my Apple Account via iTune with NO Problem in the same PC
4. I have No Problem with iCloud in my Mac devices
5. I have already run the "Netsh winsock reset" in command prompt and it is not solved the problem
Please advice if anybody solved this problem
When I goto icloud.com from my work PC (running IE 8), I don't even get the login screen. I just get the spinning sunburst. IE 8 reports the following error.
