Uninstalling and reinstalling does not fix the problem. Same popup after reinstall. I'll add that to the original question.

No unusual problems with anything else other than Chrome.

This is a Windows XP machine, actually. I was hoping that this could be fixed without a complete uninstall and reinstall, but if I get no other suggestions that's what I'll try.

Good suggestion, but this did not in fact fix the problem. A new "Default" folder got created, but I still get the popup.
