I installed ICloud control panel, etc., onto my 64-bit Windows 7 PC, and it ran OK for a while.  Then got the dreaded "blue screen of death" indicating there was a driver issue and my computer was stopped to avoid damage. 


I uninstalled ICloud and the problem went away.  Later, I installed ITunes, and decided I needed the ICloud panel, so I reinstalled it.  Same thing happened.


I'm doing this because I just got iPhone 4S thru AT&T, and want to interface it with my PC.


Any ideas, or is there already a known problem for PC's?



iPhone 4S, iOS 5.0.1, iCloud interface software on PC

    May sound weird, but are you network drivers up to date?  BSOD is usually a driver issue that is conflicting with Windows.  Go into device manager and disable all non-essential devices, UPS, NICS, USB, scanner, sound, etc and then install the iCloud panel.  If you don't see any BSOD start to enable each device one at a time to pinpoint the culprit.  The control panel itself shouldn't be causing the BSOD. 


    Is there a filename in the top left of the BSOD that can help?  i.e. ndis.sys or something?

    Did not have this problem at all before installing the iCloud software, and it vanished when I uninstalled the software.


    Thanks for the info, I will reinstall it and update my question as soon as the stop message happens again with the details.
