Best way to clean out (thousands) of fake members?

I am attempting to clean out the 13k fake auto-registered members that got into my site before i disabled registration... Given that there are so many, I am looking for a way to just wipe out all members who registered, but never posted.

I tried to set my viewing to a large number so I could do lots at once, but the code seems to 'hang' if I try to do more than about 100 at a time.... way to slow considering I have 13k to get rid of.

anyone have a good tool to wipe out all 0 post members in one shot and clean up the Members files without losing the few real Members profiles?

Maybe JonB's post here might help?

You may want to be careful about this, though, because in a lot of forums people will register, but never post. So you may very well delete members who have legitimate registrations.
  

Morning, noon, or night, have a great one!
