`C-c C-v' is bound to tex-view, which calls tex-print, which calls
tex-send-command with t as its BACKGROUND arg unconditionally.  Perhaps
that's a bug on Windows that should be reported.

You might be able to work around it with something like this:

(defadvice tex-send-command (before background activate)
  "Make sure BACKGROUND is nil on DOS/Windows systems."
  (when (memq system-type '(ms-dos windows-nt))
    (ad-set-arg 2 nil)))
