Is there a way to delete multiple folder file entries?

I have probably hundreds of the following files in various folders on my system:

NO.NAME.Directory.Output.Page.html

Is there a way I can bulk delete any/all fileson my PC with the above name ?

Thanks...Tim

I just found this program, I don't now is it freeware or not, doesn't say, but has an option to look in folders for particular extensions and delete files with that extension.
Quote:
APS Folder Cleaner is a program that deletes files from Multiple folders in batches, this means that in one step you can delete multiple files, also includes filters to remove only certain types of files in multiple folders at once, and other files in excluding filters fall within the specified criteria.

Glarys Utilities from Glarysoft has every kind of module needed to solve your problem. Years of using the program, which is free, has never altered anything I did not want changed. I recommend this program over CCleaner hands down.

Yes, I remember Glary...I used it on XP as substitute for Tune Up Utilities
or simply get Everything, (my favorite search tool) search for your file pattern, Sort the result by path, mark whatever you'd like to be gone and press delete
