Deleting all files containing string (WINDOWS DOS)

So I want to skim through all folders (ongoing from the curr dir) and delete all files that contain the string:

"in conflikt standing copy".

Is this possible WITH DOS ?

You can install GNU unix commands under windows: find, xargs, grep, rm
or install CygWin giving a shell under windows.
