Need a script to delete files with a number in the neame

Hi experts!
I need this fast so I don't have the time to hash through it, and besides, I know somebody out there has already solved it  :)

I need a script that will look at the file names in a folder and delete the ones containing a number.
I have:
I need to delete all the  "file1", "file2", and "file3"..., but leave "file" intact
batch or VBscript will be the easiest to implement..

"The solutions and answers provided on Experts Exchange have been extremely helpful to me over the last few years. I wear a lot of hats - Developer, Database Administrator, Help Desk, etc., so I know a lot of things but not a lot about one thing. Experts Exchange gives me answers from people who do know a lot about one thing, in a easy to use platform." -Todd S.

Try the script below, just adjust the folder name at the beginning; it will delete anything with a number in the name found in this folder (it won't process subfolders at the moment).
The script is currently in test mode, it will only display the "del" commands it would otherwise run, but not actually delete anything, so that you can test it.
To run it for real, remove the capitalized "ECHO" in front of the "del" command.
@echo off
set Root=C:\Folder
for /f "delims=" %%a in ('dir /b /a:-d "%Root%\*.*" ^| findstr /r ".*[0-9][0-9]*.*"') do (
  Deleting %%a ...
  ECHO del "%Root%\%%a"

Dim objFSO : Set objFSO = CreateObject("Scripting.FileSystemObject")
Dim objFolder : Set objFolder = objFSO.GetFolder(ParentFolder)
For Each File in objFolder.Files
  strFile = Replace(, "." & objFSO.GetExtensionName(file),"")
  If IsNumeric(Right(strFile,1)) Then
    wscript.echo "Deleting " &
    objFSO.DeleteFile (file)
  End If
