Mass delete post from unregistered

Hi,
I'm helping a friend that had an old forum. I upgraded his forum from 2.x to to 3.1.3. He had wrong permissions set, so guest users (spammers) posted a lot (thousand of messages). Now I have set the correct permission.

I'm trying to figure out how to delete all posts from unregistered users from ACP but I'm not able to find a solution. Has someone an idea about it?
Thank you!

Thank you for your reply. But the page you posted here is to help pruning posts from (auto)registered users. In my case posts are from unregistered users.
Anyway I found out how to solve. I write it here for others. My Board is not in english so it is possible that page are not named exactly as I write...
In the ACP go to USERS AND GROUPS > MANAGE USERS. Select ANONYMOUS USER. Choose DELETE ALL POST and go. This will delete posts from unregistered users (will not delete the "Anonymous" user). After that resync all forums.
