How can I stop preview opening the 700 files

How can I stop preview opening the 700 files I had opened before when I open a new file?
I already try cmd+option+Q and cmd+W on each windows.

Do that once, launch the application and close it again. Return to original settings and it should work.

Is that from a spam of documents you open or virus of some sort. If there are multiple windows (in most applications including Preview.app), use cmd + alt + W to close all windows.

I don't think it's a virus. I've got pictures from a camera and lessons from university.
Thanks for help.

In Mountain Lion, there is "Close windows when quitting an application" option. That option when ticked, you should know what it does.

This setting is under System Preferences>General .
