    Hold the option key down and click on the close window button (the red one)
    it will close all open windows (works in applications also)

    if they close individually and not the way that I indicate, then you have other problems.

    I'm glad that worked for you... I was concerned some goof-ball was going to come in here and tell you to repair permissions or some such happy horsecrap!
