How to delete 100K spammy threads?

Hello all,

In the past couple of months my vbulletin forum was attacked by I don't know how many spammy robots.
The result? almost 200,000 posts and almost 100,000 threads by 1000 of "new users" I want to delete.

I tried going a user by user with the admin's user name but I get this:
"The following users had more than 50 posts and these posts will need to be removed via the admin control panel."

In the admincp I only found the "Prune" option, but it doesn't work so well for me, I still need to go user by user and it's very slow.

Is there a faster option to remove everything from the last 60 or 90 days through the admincp?
