WD Live 2TB 'backup' immediately causes Windows 8 to crash

My new 2TB WD Live device is plugged into my router.  i installed the software on my Windows 8 PC.  When I press ‘backup’ button the PC crashes.  Every time I reboot my PC crashes until I unplug the WD Live device from the router.  I get the same results every time I follow these steps - PLEASE HELP! 

If you are using smartware, uninstall the version that you have and download the latest version. Check the link below for the download links.
