Re: Many Cygwin (mintty) windows - How to close all?

Is there some sort of Cygwin command that -

3. Exits X server
in short, gets rid of all Cygwin processes so I can update & restart
without having to do all this myself.
I use the attached script (run it elevated on Vista and above) before
updating with setup. This is only tested on Vista.
Doing a 'kill -9 -1' works for me in terms of getting rid of all my
mintty windows at once. I'm not sure if it will kill services and
exit the X server as well.
Thanks for the suggestions.
