How to delete all folders/files with a certain name

I want to delete all the files/folders with a certain name like the __MACOSX folders that comes with many icon packs.

Is there a tool or script that can do that?
I think there should a command-line instruction to do this but i couldn´t find it.

Pretty sure this will do what you want. Start>type cmd in the lower window, when it comes up right mouse click and run as administrator and it will launch a terminal OS window. Type cd .. until you get back to a C:/ showing (if your on D: or E: same thing) then type del /s __MACOSX\*

I would just search __MACOSX from Computer, and delete all the folders with that name that come up.
