    I think you mean recovery which will destroy all data and leave you with the system as it was out of box. Reloading the system if you have a retail version will reload your system but leave the files.
    I think you will have to select and delete them. If you press and hold the control key then left click on the files you want to remove you can select multiple files at a time. Then release the control key and right click on any one of them and choose delete. It will delete all those selected.

    tell your kids to put their music on their MP3 player (they surely got one) and delete the files from your computer.
    Or if they are big enough, tell them like me, go to work and buy your own computer.
