Delete Files based on criteria

Greetings,
Do any of you know of a simple tool for deletiing files based on "older than x number of days" that could be run as a daily scheduled task. I have been searching the "freeware sites" for a uility but have not found anything.
Unfortunately, I'm not versed in scripting.

Thanks,
Mark

Just be sure to test carefully before using them on a production system.
