Angry Can't close Nautilus in Xcfe

My computer is semi-old (3 years). GNOME was running okay and it looked pretty and all, but I wanted to try some of the other environments to see if they ran faster.

I started using Xcfe, and it runs beautifully. However, out of curiosity, I opened up Nautilus in Xcfe. Yeah, I'm dumb. Now it won't close. If I try to close it, nothing happens. If I restart X, it's still there. If I restart my computer, it's still there. The best I can do is minimize it, making it an icon on the desktop. I'd rather not have it sit there and take up resources.

btw this site is great. So many forums blow off newbies with no sympathy. Even though this is my first post, I've learned a lot from searching the forums (been using Linux for about a week now, Slackware 9.0)

EDIT: Nevermind, found it elsewhere (just had to type in killall nautilus at the command line)... how do you delete your own posts?
