There is a fine review of Sat tracking software on TS Kelso's page at
http://www.grove.net/~tkelso/software/satellite/sat-trak.htm 
including screen shots and links

I am surprised that so few people have mentioned NOVA from Northernlights Software http://www.nlsa.com
I have used virtually every major tracking program and find NOVA the most flexible. It has too many features to mention here but a few notables are, a very easy method for updating large elements sets, choice of tracking algorithm (G3RUH P13, SGP4/SDP4) the best 32 bit graphics, etc, etc. Of course program selection depends on one's needs and tastes.
