Oh swell. It also works for Xp users as well. *It is not limited to Win7.
I would suggest not doing kep updates until this gets resolved!!
*All the txt files for keps updates are still here but have not much 
useable data within and all have timestamps of when the last update was 
done. Possibly a formatting issue with celestrak since that is the 
source I update from. Is anyone using stoff.pl or space-trak and seeing 
similar problems?
