Trying to click the Options button for Photostream in the new iCloud control panel did nothing and then I got "Windows Explorer has stopped responding...." (win 7 64-bit)

Was this a fresh install of iCloud 2.0, or an update from the previous version? If the latter, try uninstalling iCloud and then re-install it using the link found at http://support.apple.com/kb/DL1455

Just a reminder - if you are using iCloud with Outlook in Windows 7, when you re-install iCloud, be sure to select NOT to upload and merge your Outlook contacts - they are already there, and I am pretty sure that would result in duplicates (unless the merge is really smart). I deselected all the checkboxes to upload from Outlook, and the result was perfect. Photostream works and the control panel works fine.

Yup! iCloud keep crashing Explorer.exe for me on Windows 7 x64. This was from a fresh install of iCloud 2.0, I never had any iCloud or PhotoStream installed. I installed it from http://support.apple.com/kb/DL1455.
I read a few posts on this forum and tried the solution of:
1) Open iCloud
2) Uncheck "Photo Stream" checkbox
3) Click "Apply" button.
4) Recheck "Photo Stream" checkbox
5) Click "Close"
During the course of these steps, Explorer.exe crashed again, but I was able to complete the steps.

Umm, and? Did that solution help you or why are you typing all this?

OK this is ridiculous. The applephotostrems.exe would crash on my problem-free PC each time you launched it. So the only solution for me was to install iCloud Control Panel v1.0.1 ang get rid of the v2.0 junk.
I can't believe the state Apple stuff is of lately.

Good Job Henry B. re-install works.

yes, 3.0 was a non-starter. 3.1 seems to do the trick. I just updated using the Apple Software Update. I think you MUST restart after the install to get it to work properly.
