You can do this easily with ExifTool:

exiftool -all= -overwrite_original -r .

This command will remove all supported tags from all supported file types in the current directory and all sub-directories. Be careful with this (remove -overwrite_original if you're not sure) and read the documentation first.

You could use a program like ACDSee, which allows bulk operations.

I think Windows Live Photo Gallery (free) can do the same thing.
