How do i delete multiple folders in the Public Desktop Folder?

I have a unique issue....

A user deleted a file and we had to use recovery software to retrieve the file.  The problem is the software we used created 3000+ folders in the public desktop folder.  I need to delete all the folders, but since they are in the public desktop folder I am prompted that the folder is shared and am I sure I'd like to delete it.  I would really not like to click yes 3000 times.

So far, I've changed the registry key HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE \ SOFTWARE\ Microsoft\ Windows NT \ CurrentVersion \ ProfileList to point to a new location.  Then installed moveonboot utility and it didn't work.

Any suggestions.
