Hi Bob,

I experience similar issues lately

ALT-F4 and windows task manager can help to prevent from rebooting your 

In my case this behaviour occurs when object ID's are changed or 
from the kepler input files. Lately we had Kicksat, Phonesat and other
cubesats that burned up in the atmosphere and therefor where removed 
the DB.

To solve the issue I check and edit the satellite group files and 
remove them
by hand.

Some extra information for Erich:

I create my own kepler input files direct from Space Track (with the 
help from
HaloKepler) here an example 
and use multiple groups that use there own kepler input when object 
ID's are
no longer available or have changed and satellites are active in the 
file SatPC32 reacts with the message "Ungultige gleitkommaoperation"

Maybe it is possible to have SatPC32 act different when object ID's are
changed or removed from the kepler input file and active in one of the
group files.
