Yes, Google Earth was enabled. I unchecked it and the problem seems to be resolved. Which, of course, doesn't actually represent a solution if I want to have Google Earth enabled. But, still, at least the pop-up is gone.

+ If and when you decide to install Google Earth, it will register itself with Windows as the default application for .kml files. Then when DXView directs Windows to "open" a .kml file, Windows will automatically invoke Google Earth to display it.

+ Why this level of indirection through Windows? So that DXView doesn't have to know where you installed Google Earth.
