Deleting The Dreaded _vti_cnf folders recursively Created by FrontPage

Recently installed the FrontPage extension on my old Windows XP box. Turns out, each of the folder under C:\Inetpub\wwwroot directory now has a folder called _vti_cnf .
It doesn't hurt anything, just annoying.

If you have Windows Powershell installed, you're lucky. Just open a Powershell window and issue the following commands:

cd C:\Inetpub\wwwroot

Get-ChildItem $RootDir "_vti_cnf" -recurse | Remove-Item -recurse

That's it, it's all gone.
