Lol. A great guide!
1. Wait a few years
2. Use what exists (by then), changing it only slightly
3. ??
4. Profit! (or in this case: world destruction)
Even I can do that...

Well guys, nanotechnology in itself isn't anything worrying - at present time it's used for almost everything surrounding us - if you don't believe me, just check out that Nano technology news website - I'm reading them on a daily bases and it's all about the nanotechnology and possibilities of it's use, which are really endless - so well... while u r keeping all those researches in the right way, nothing should happened...

Two words. Energy Deficit.
All the nanites will do is block out the Sun and then run out of energy, therefore only the edges of the cloud would be dangerous.
Also when they run out of address space (cough IPV4 /cough) they will stop according to the journal "XKCD"
