How to Turn Off "Close All Tabs" in IE

The multiple tab function on Internet Explorer 7 and 8 (IE7 and IE8), allows the surfer to have several Web pages open at once without opening multiple, system-slowing, browser windows. Tabs were not available on Internet Explorer 6 (IE6) according to Microsoft. When closing the browser window, a dialog pops up if you have multiple tabs opened. This request to "Close all tabs" becomes a hindrance for some. Stop this pop up query from appearing when you close your Internet Explorer 7 or 8 browser if it is getting in your way.
