Is there a javascript program that I can put onto my site so that it automatically closes pop-ups? This would be extremely helpful, and I just wanted to see if someone had already made one.

Javascript on a page can only close a window if javascript on that same page (or it's parent page) opened it. To allow anything more would open a really big security hole.

Is it your own pop-ups that you want to close?
