Blue Screen with 1.5.5

Has anyone else gotten a blue screen when loading 1.5.5? When loading the Arduino software I see the Arduino Splash screen, but get the vague message "Your PC Ran Into a Problem and Has to Restart..." afterwhich my PC restarts in just a few seconds.

1.05 works fine for me but 1.5.5 does not. Please help, I cannot use my Due!

Is it possible that I need to be using Windows 8.1 instead of Windows 8? Any help would be appreciated. I can't imagine I'm the only one who has had this problem

Is there a hub between the Due and your computer?

Unfortunately the Due is not plugged in at all, its set aside in the box. I think I had it plugged in once to install the drivers at which time it was plugged into a hub. I never make it past the splash screen when loading the software.

So you get a blue screen of death just trying to run the IDE?
