Windows 7: How do I remove - Copy from multiple files at once?

How do I remove - Copy from multiple files at once?

I just created a huge bunch of copies of files using that 'create copy with all possible properties removed' button. So, is there any way to remove the * - Copy* bit from them all at once? Can't seem to find out how to do so anywhere.

I don't believe Windows 7 has a native way of bulk renaming, but you can use "Bulk Rename" which can be downloaded from;

Thanks! Had no idea this program existed... Hopefully people with the same question will find this thread! For anyone wondering how to use the program for this, all you need to do is select the files to rename inside the program and under option 3, Repl(ace). you need to type " - Copy" without the quotes into the first box and press Ctrl+R(there may be another way to do this that I don't know of, but this was how I did it). All done!
