How can I find and delete empty folders on my PC?

Is there any program to find and delete empty folders in Windows 7. I'm asking cos when a program is uninstalled it's deleting the files within the folder instead of that folder. I just want to get rid of those rubbish 0 byte folders.

Use a program called "Remove Empty Directories".

It's free and has been around quite a while. It works OK on Windows 7.

Sweet. I especially like in the settings you can set it to ignore certain filetypes. For example, Picasa.ini files.
