XML parsing and removing

I need to remove some lines from some XML files, specifically some of the xmlns stuff, but I need to do it in batches of thousands of files.

I'm trying to write a program that will ream the folder and remove the xmlsn:addData and xmlns:form from each file that looks like this... I'm not very adept with XML, so I'm having a rough time understanding what each of these elements are. Any ideas?

I'm using C# as my coding language.
<document xmlns="http://www.ademero.com/XmlSchemas/ContentCentral/XmlCaptureDescriptorV1.1" 
		  xmlns:addData="http://www.abbyy.com/FlexiCapture/Schemas/Export/AdditionalFormData.xsd" 
		  xmlns:form="http://www.abbyy.com/FlexiCapture/Schemas/Export/FormData.xsd">
	<imageFiles>
		<file>Images\AIRCO-V9516NT_1.pdf</file>
	</imageFiles>
	<destination>
		<catalog docType="default">Accounts Payable</catalog>
	</destination>
	<fields>
		<field name="Invoice">V9516NT</field>
		<field name="Vendor">AIRCO INC</field>
		<field name="Date">1999-04-14</field>
	</fields>
</document>
