I installed Lion OS X on my computer. Whenever I Quit any application (Excel, Safari, Preview, etc.), all of my previous windows will open back up from what I had up.

For example - I had 4 windows open in Safari and closed them all by doing the "quit" function. When I went to reopen Safari for a client, with the expectation of it opening 1 window to my homepage, it reopened all 4 windows from my previous session.

It does this for ALL programs - not just Safari. How can I fix this?

I work with clients so I want it to "start fresh" as it did with Snow Leopard so I don't have to worry about clients seeing personal information.
