Me and my fiance share one iTunes account. My question is how do we set up two different iCloud accounts? I went to Me.com and it had me log in with my Apple ID. Once I did that I didnt see anything else on how to create another account.

Set them up separately on your iDevices or assuming you have Lion 10.7.2, there is an iCloud panel where you can create multiple IDs

Well I wish I had a Mac but unfortunately I'm using Windows Vista. I'm signed in with my Apple ID on my iPhone. I setup a mobile me account awhile back for find my iPhone. I used the same email account for my Apple ID and the Mobile Me account. It's a aol email account.

Can I just make a new one or what should I do?

On your device, assuming one is set up for iCloud already, go into Settings>Mail, Calendar, etc. Add an iCloud account. When it asks for credentials, look at bottom of screen and it will allow you to create a new applied for iCloud.

why not have seperate itunes accounts? you can still share all your apps/music if its on the same computer (or more if you enable home sharing).

Do you mean that two apple ID accounts can share apps on one device as long as they are both on the same computer?
